"The song is about the idea that we have so much incredible potential as human beings to be destructive or to be creative. And it's tragic to me that the appetite for military innovation is endless, but when it comes to taking on a project like ending world hunger, it's seen as outlandish. It's not treated with the same seriousness. The lyrics came to me as I was riding a bike home from work with my hands in the air - I had just learned how to do it - and I felt triumphant, but at the same time, I knew there were people at that moment who were being bombed by our own country. And I thought that was incredibly powerful. We have these little moments of creativity, these bursts of innovation, and every time that happens, that innovation is used to oppress and destroy people. So it struck me as beautiful and tragic at the same time."

"There is a taboo," said the visionary Edward Said, "on telling the truth about Palestine and the great destructive force behind Israel. Only when this truth is out can any of us be free."

For many people, the truth is out now. At last, they know. Those once intimidated into silence can't look away now. Staring at them from their TV, laptop, phone, is proof of the barbarism of the Israeli state and the great destructive force of its mentor and provider, the United States, the cowardice of European governments, and the collusion of others, such as Canada and Australian, in this epic crime.

The attack on Gaza was an attack on all of us. The siege of Gaza is a siege of all of us. The denial of justice to Palestinians is a symptom of much of humanity under siege and a warning that the threat of a new world war is growing by the day.

Please sign this petition against the deregistration of the Socialist Alternative club at Monash University.

Free Palestine!!
 
Palestine Solidarity Activists in Brighton have been picketing the EcoStream/SodaStream shop which sells produce from Israel's illegal settlements for the last 18 months since it opened. The campaign will continue until they pack up and quit Brighton in the same way that the Ahava shop closed in London when the Zionist propaganda chiefs realized that its presence was not only hated by a large section of the public but it was also continuing to lose vast amounts of cash.

As I have said before the only time Zionists speak in support of 'Palestinian Workers' is when it suits them; otherwise the IDF could shoot them all dead and the only mention it would get in the Jewish Chronicle would be "Board of Deputies denies Israeli involvement in Maale Adumim attack".  If the demonstration is not about the shop but about the continued existence of the state of Israel why were there no demonstrations to speak of in Brighton before the arrival of the Zionist propaganda shop? Israel has been around for some 66 years.

May 1948 Palestinian exodus. Known in Arabic as the Nakba(disaster ,catastrophe,) occurred when approximately 711,000 to 726,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled from their homes, during the 1947-1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine and the Arab- Israeli War in 1948. Their are still Palestinian refugees who still hold the keys to their occupied homes in hopes of returning one day .
