"In the News, Brown children matter when it is time to illustrate grief and suffering. The Brown bodies slaughtered and strewn on the streets of Chicago pepper our screens whenever CNN or the Nightly News decides to feature a segment on them. Yes, we want attention brought to these issues. But, can we do it in a way that respects the deceased? We do see White children on the screen when they go missing, or post-grief, when they have survived a trauma. And it’s usually a static photo from a happier time. In that context, images of White children are displayed with a consistency. To pull us in. To create empathy in our hearts. To keep us alert and on the lookout. White equals sympathy. What is the meaning of a deceased Brown child?"

"Oh rascal children of Gaza. You who constantly disturbed me with your screams under my window. You who filled every morning with rush and chaos. You who broke my vase and stole the lonely flower on my balcony. Come back, and scream as you want and break all the vases. Steal all the flowers. Come back..Just come back.."
- Khaled Juma, a Palestinian poet from Gaza (via lastuli)

The fact that you can’t post a Palestinian death toll without it becoming inaccurate in a matter of hours speaks volumes.

After a night in which Israel killed at least 60 Palestinians in the Shuja’iya neighborhood of Gaza City — the number will rise as more bodies are recovered — the Israeli army sends taunting text messages to Gaza’s residents. These monsters don’t even have the decency to use correct grammar. [link]

Members of People Before Profit removed the Israeli flag from a pole in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin, today that had been flying in the harbour for a European sailing competition.
In the wake of escalated tensions in Gaza and a ground invasion that took place last night, complaints had been made to the Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company asking for its removal.
Councillor Hugh Lewis, who took the flag down, said, “It is completely unacceptable and inappropriate that after hundreds of people have been in contact, demanding that the flag be taken down out of solidarity and respect, it flies high in our town.”
Three thousand people attended a pro-Palestinian march in Dublin last weekend and support for the cause has been growing since the death of over 270 Palestinians in the recent violence.
“The support for Palestine has been overwhelming, the Harbour Company should have responded to the hundreds of calls they received and not have it come to this,” he concluded.
