EXCLUSIVE...Emily Henochowicz Speaks Out: Art Student Who Lost Her Eye After Being Shot by Israeli Tear Gas Canister in West Bank Protest Discusses Her Life, Her Art, and Why She Plans to Return:

"Today, a Democracy Now global broadcast exclusive interview with Emily Henochowicz. She’s the 21 year-old American art student who lost her eye in May after being shot in the face by an Israeli tear gas canister at a protest against Israel’s attack on the Gaza flotilla that left nine people dead. 'I’m not ashamed of the fact that I lost my eye. I’m proud of who I am. I believed in the cause and that’s why I came to that demonstration on that day,' Henochowicz says. 'I’m not going to be the same person that I was before this happened.'
