Sheep

Raising sheep is a tradition for some and a new source of income for others. Local and international NGOs have supported low-income families by providing sheep in hopes that the families can become self-sufficient. But Israel’s war on Gaza has ravaged the land, as have the years of siege, banning affordable animal feed and impacting the growth of locally-produced grains. Sheep in Gaza can often be seen grazing in garbage dumps, for anything remotely edible.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
