General information February 27, 2024

US Serviceman Aaron Bushnell set fire to himself outside the Israeli embassy on monday Frebruary 26. On the way there he said:

"I will no longer be complicit in genocide. I'm about to engage in an extreme act of protest but, compared to what people have been experiencing in Palestine at the hands of their colonizers, it's not extreme at all. This is what our ruling class has decided will be normal."

He died in hospital from his injuries.

One of the bravest voices

If I must die,
you must live
to tell my story
to sell my things
to buy a piece of cloth
nd some strings,
(make it white with a long tail)
so that a child, somewhere in Gaza
while looking heaven in the eye
awaiting his dad who left in a blaze-
and bid no one farewell
not even to his flesh
not even to himself-
sees the kite, my kite you made, flying up above
and thinks for a moment an angel is there
bringing back love
If I must die let it bring hope
let it be a tale
