free palestine!!

Yesterday was Eurovision, a competition that specifically banned the use of the Palestinian flag in any performance while allowing Israel to participate every year since 1973 although not being part of Europe.

Today is Nakba Day. The annual remembrance day of the mass killing and displacement of Palestinians in 1948.

One day is not enough to remember what happened and what is still happening to the Palestinians, that being said take the time today to educate yourself on the on going atrocities and maybe think twice about taking part in things that regularly silence the oppressed.

While Trump has been getting attention for his push to build a stupid wall on the border with Mexico. The American taxpayers have been subsidizing Israel allowing them to build an apartheid wall cutting through Palestinian owned land at our own expense and making life difficult for Palestinians.

Regardless if it’s Trump’s stupid wall or Israel’s apartheid wall. No wall should ever be build. Only bridges for mutual respect and friendship be build which makes far more sense than any stupid walls.
