This blog will post instances of non-violent actions for peace and justice from all over the world. Today these are some photos of a demonstration by children in Palestine.
On Tuesday, the 6th of January 2009, the children of Ni’lin village, west of Ramallah held a protest against the Israeli military strike in Gaza. Dozens of kids waved flags and carried pictures of the casualties of their Gazan neighbours.
Those children know already what this is all about, as the town of Ni’lin has been facing a harsh repression against the weekly peaceful demontrations against the Wall for the last 6 months. There, Israeli violence killed a least 3 teenagers and dozens were injured and imprisoned. A child holds a picture of Arafat Khawaja who was shot by an IDF soldier at a demonstration in the village on December 28th 2008, during the protest against the Israeli military strike in Gaza.
