An activist from the International Solidarity Movement blocks IDF soldiers from shooting at protesting Palestinians in Gaza, saying “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!“
Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.
this is why I wanted to be a war journalist. how powerful is this segment. why did it not make it on the news?
Because Western/US media supports Israel’s war crimes, just as the US funds and arms Israel’s ethnocidal regime.
In case anyone else is like me and didn’t get the Diana Prince joke at first and was super confused (Wonder Woman) and is curious to know who she is, she appears to be Huwaida Arraf (first link to her Twitter, second to her Wikipedia page).
thank you for the links and correct info, leggy
seriously my favorite picture ever
Solidarity, on a global scale.
The solidarity never left us
I may not be a perfect person but at least I have never yelled at an employee in a store
Why is it when I see a white girl with a tattoo on her thigh i think sexy? But a Latina I think ghettos as fuck?

We need better sex ed because our health teacher told a girl in my friends class that girls do not have wet dreams.
But to answer your question: partially. There’s historical context, obviously. President Bush tanked the economy with deregulation and tax cuts for the super wealthy (leading to an enormous deficit that republicans were unconcerned about until he left office)… but in reality it was President Ronald Reagan who set the ball rolling with that disastrous brain fart, trickle-down economics.
As far as the “Middle East,” you could be referring to any number of issues in the region. Certainly the problems with the US involvement in Iraq should be traced to W., but he wasn’t the first foreign leader to screw with things over there. Obviously President Obama has exacerbated anti-US sentiment in the region with his endless drone strikes.
You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!
