After a War, Still Living in Rubble: Fallout in Gaza (Part 1)

Watch Part Two “Trouble in the Tunnel” – http://bit.ly/1AKYBiI During the devastating 50-day war in Israel and Gaza this past summer, around 18,000 homes in Gaza were destroyed or severely damaged, leaving around 120,000 residents homeless. Now, with trouble in neighboring Sinai and infighting between Palestinian factions, reconstruction efforts in the beleaguered Gaza Strip are moving slowly. With the UN warning of a growing humanitarian crisis for the people of Gaza, many fear that another armed conflict is imminent. Six months after the end of fighting, VICE News returns to the region to investigate the progress on reconstruction. In part one, VICE News correspondent Danny Gold returns to Shija’iyya, the neighborhood that bore the brunt of last summer’s fighting, and investigates how the closure of the Rafah crossing and demolition of the underground tunnels to Egypt has impacted Gaza’s fragile economy.

On The Line: Neha Shastry discusses Toxic Coal Ash in the US (Trailer)

On Thursday at 12pm EST Neha Shastry will join On the Line to answer your questions about her piece, “Toxic Waste in the US: Coal Ash” – http://bit.ly/1zDaW66 An estimated 113 million tons of coal ash – the toxic byproduct of coal-fired power plants – are produced annually in the US. Coal ash is stored in almost every state with little government oversight and few safeguards in place. When spills occur, nearby communities and ecosystems pay the price. Neha Shastry traveled across the US for VICE News to meet the people and visit the areas most affected by this toxic waste. VICE News and On The Line want to hear from you! Let us know your questions for Neha on Twitter with the hashtag #ontheline, or send us a video message on Skype.
