No to War in Gaza and Afghanistan



 

On the 8th of July 2014, during the fasting month of Ramadan, the Israeli government began yet another military offensive on the people of Gaza. By the 4th day, they had already killed 105 Palestinians, including at least 23 children.

The Afghan Peace Volunteers went out onto the streets of Kabul just before it was time to break their fast. They shared dates with the people in the streets, in solidarity with the Palestinians and the Israelis being killed by the bombs and rockets dropped and fired by their governments.

By sharing food, we resist war

.

No to War in Gaza and Afghanistan!

Share food, resist war.

We’re not only disgusted

by man-made bombs,

we’re angry at the governments

that drop them.

We’re terrified

not of their physical destructiveness,

but of their depravity,

and acceptability.

We’ve lost our children

& loved ones

to ruthlessness.

Amidst the explosions

of our souls,

our mothers still

keep the wits around

our crying homes,

just so to feed us

after the fast.

That’s it!

That’s our resistance to their

profiteering wars,

that while they kill,

they can never stop us

from sharing our food.

They are the ones

already dead,

the emperors

with no clothes,

only futile weapons

that adorn

their ceremonial crowns,

oblivious to the awakening giant

of love.

They are blind to the better world

in which their Power

and ‘haram’ money

are being frowned upon

in the streets,

and in our bread.

Share food, resist war

No! to war in Gaza and Afghanistan.
