Remembering Rachel Corrie, who in this childhood video, gave such an inspiring 5th Grade Speech, then went on to LIVE by her altruistic ideals.
On March 16, 2003, Rachel was brutally run over and crushed to death by an IOF CaTerrorPillar bulldozer while seeking to protect her friends home, with whom she had lived in Gaza, from demolition.
The bulldozer then REVERSED back over her.
Her family’s Quest for Justice for this senseless killing continues to THIS DAY.
I recently joined a group on Facebook, ‘WE ARE ALL PALESTINE 2’, so I’ve been updated with many petitions and many actions that have been going on inside Palestine and outside too.
Been reading a lot about the imprisonment of Shireen and Shadi Issawi and I’ve came across this petition.
Therefore, if you believe in a #FreePalestine and not only, if you just believe in humanity, please do sign this petition.
Free Shireen and Shadi Issawi! Free Palestine!
I know I’ve been away for a while, but I was not absent in this ‘activist life’ if so to say (lol). Our faculty is divided into 3 parts, the English group, the French and the Romanian one. I’m studying in English, so I’m obviously part of the English one. We (about 5-6 people max.) have developed a website (blog) where we write different articles. My part is ‘The Middle East Weekly Review’ and today is one month since I started writing for the blog.
I will be posting the links to the articles and I promise to be updating this blog as much as possible, with those articles and not only, new things as well. It’s just that I’m having finals soon, so I’m pretty much eating the books (haha) but as soon as summer’s here.. I’ll be writing a lot, other than just me spending time with my friends as I’m going to TRNC (Turkish Republic of North Cyprus) to visit my fiance, then to Antalya, Turkey to see my best friend and for the rest of the holiday (more specifically 2 months and half) I’ll be home, in Kuwait. Woop woop!
So here we go:
1st article (29th April):
2nd article (6th May):
3rd article (14th May):
4th article (21st May):
I have to state, that I tried to be as objective as I could. However, this cannot be fully possible as I have my own feelings and my own personal opinions and I tend to publicise them. Hope it was good. Hope you will like them.. and thanks for keeping up with my blog.
God bless you!
A BBC documentary.
How can the world be so ignorant and not do anything? Innocent people are suffering there. Innocent people are being attacked. Innocent people are dying!
As I was looking through my Facebook page, I saw this. Something pretty interesting.
Ps. I wanna apologise to all my American readers, if this bothers you. But from the perspective of someone who has lived in the Middle East, this is very accurate.
Dragii mei români, cum puteți sta așa liniștiți când lucruri groaznice se întâmplă în lume?
În timp ce UNICEF își continuă campania pentru Siria #WithSyria #NOlostgeneration #childrenofsyria care a început deoarece mâine, 15 Martie se împlinesc 3 ani de când a început războiul.. în timp ce multe țări de pe acest Pământ organizează ‘silent-protests’ diseară pentru această campanie. Noi ce facem? Nimic. Continuăm să fim la fel de ignoranți, așa cum am fost obișnuiți.
București, de ce nu faci nimic? Alte orașe mari, de ce nu faceți nimic? My hometown, Râmnicu Vâlcea, de ce stai și taci?
De ce nu iese nimeni? 2-3 persoane. Un mesaj scurt dar plin de emoții și sentimente. O poză distribuită (shared) de mai multe persoane și uite așa facem și noi ceva.
Nu mișcăm munți, dar știm că am participat.
De ce tăceți?
Source from the Facebook page: This is Gaza – like it, for more shocking pictures and news.
“How can people who suffered from the Holocaust do such things to other people?”
Aren’t they meant to know what pain, suffering, hunger … mean? Why do it in return? Why do you have to come to a land that was already inhabited, Palestine and want to cleanse it all out?
As I’m very interested in the Syrian Civil War and the inhumane way in which the Syrian population, especially women and children- are treated, I have been looking around for campaigns which I could help as much as I could. As soon as I found about the message spread around by UNICEF, #NOlostgeneration #childrenofsyria I have tried my best to spread it around too. Been tweeting about it, posting on Facebook and I will post it on this blog too until everyone around me and all my readers will sign that petition.
Today, while I was on a break from my university classes (studying political science, so you can see from where all the interest), I looked around Facebook and I saw UNICEF post about David Beckham’s video in which he clearly states that he supports this campaign.
Thought of sharing it with you and maybe you can keep promoting this cause.
Here’s the video:
& here’s the petition:
