Emily Henochowicz, Voice Cover Subject, on Democracy Now! (Video)


Emily Henochowicz, the 21-year-old subject of our cover story last week, appeared on Democracy Now! this morning to discuss her art, her injury, and Israel’s official response.

Since the Voice profile, Israel has formally declared that they have no intention of paying Henochowicz’s $3,700 medical bill for the care she received in Jerusalem after tear gas from an Israeli border guard shot the left eye out of her head.

Henochowicz has also told the Voice that she has been deposed by the Israeli government for their official inquiry into the shooting. However, she found it somewhat confusing, as her voice was not recorded during the interview, with someone transcribing what she said into Hebrew and writing that down as the official record instead.
