Handstyles 10 – Free Palestine
“If you’re not careful the newspapers (insert today’s media) will have you hating the people being oppressed, and loving the people who are oppressing” -Malcolm X
I would just like to give a continuous shout out to the people of Palestine, all of the refugees of Palestinian descent, the Jewish folks who also support, and all the folks around the world who support the right of Palestine to be free. Free of apartheid rules, free to return to their homes and lands, and freedom from the oppressive regime of Israel (supported by the US Govt). It is not a conflict, it is a genocidal land grab. It is not a border, it is an illegal wall. I am not anti-semitic, I am anti oppressive regime (zionism). It is not a balanced number of people killing each other, it is one heavily funded and armed super state who have stolen land and lives, trying to kill, starve, and push a people off their land. Stay woke when it comes to the media framing of the issues from the statistics they push, to which experts are allowed to speak, to the words they use to describe the struggle there. How can you support? Boycott, divest, from Israeli products, support, travel, etc. Support Palestinian organizations who support a free Palestine. Support Palestinian businesses and artists. You can support a free Palestine, by saying it, and showing up in the streets, online, through organizing, with your dollars, and by learning. I also want to be clear that I am not advocating violence against the people of Israel, I am advocating that the boot of the Israeli Zionist gov’t be taken off the necks of Palestinian people.
To my Palestinian supporters, please comment or tag an organization doing good work so folks know. And please correct me if I have mis-spoken.
