14/07/14: SFP and the Women’s Union step up the pressure on the Occupation

On Monday afternoon SFP and the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees (UPWC) again went to take their message in support of Gaza direct to the Occupation at Huwwara checkpoint, just south of Nablus. The soldiers violently attacked the activists pushing and attempting to punch women and young people. They also threw several stun grenades directly at the activists. One activists required medical treatment for an injury to his arm and several suffered cuts and bruises from the attacking soldiers.

Activists also read out the words of Mahmoud Darwish, the great Palestinian poet, from his poem “Under Siege”:

[To a killer] If you had contemplated the victim’s face
And thought it through, you would have remembered your mother in the
Gas chamber, you would have been freed from the reason for the rifle
And you would have changed your mind: this is not the way
to find one’s identity again.

However, despite the attempts to silence the resistance with their violence, SFP and the UPWC have vowed to step up their activities and continue to face the Occupation until Palestine is free and Gazans can live is safety.

SFP implores the world to join the struggle for freedom and boycott Apartheid Israel, and spread the word to your friends and colleagues. Please click here to find out how to boycott.
