Part 1 Part 2
I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.
Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.
Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening

An activist from the International Solidarity Movement blocks IDF soldiers from shooting at protesting Palestinians in Gaza, saying “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!“
Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.
this is why I wanted to be a war journalist. how powerful is this segment. why did it not make it on the news?
Because Western/US media supports Israel’s war crimes, just as the US funds and arms Israel’s ethnocidal regime.

GAZA UNDER ATTACK NOW.
important world update:
Gaza + Palestine are under attack by Israel, death toll currently at 27 :(
This has been a long and destructive period between Israel + Palestine. If anyone has any reliable sources to learn more about what’s going on at this current moment, please let me know
- The Guardian: Israel pounds Gaza with air and naval strikes in move against Hamas
- Al Jazeera: Israel steps up deadly Gaza Strip offensive; at least 27 dead, 130 wounded
- New York Times: Israel and Hamas Trade Attacks as Tension Rises
- RTE News: Israel launches major offensive against Hamas
- BBC: Israel ‘ready for escalation’ of Gaza conflict
Please don’t. Don’t repost this shit.
I don’t trust these Western news sources (with the exception of Al Jazeera), even the titles of their articles are acting like there is two equal sides attacking each other.
See how they keep mentioning Hamas and how Israel is responding against Hamas.
No, that is not the case. That is of course what Israel says and has said every operation to justify their attacks on Palestinians.
These are not two equal sides. Israel is not targeting Hamas. Israel is targeting civilians just like it has in every other attack. They target homes, hospitals, schools, soccer fields, and ambulances.
This is no “conflict,” this is genocide.
Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.
After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.
Rare World War One Colour Photographs by Hans Hildenbrand
Hans Hildenbrand wasone of 19 official German photographers documenting the war, but the only one to shoot in colour. The subject matter includes numerous trench shots showing soldiers standing to, relaxing and manning a Maxim Gun. While others show supply depots backdropped by the ruins of towns and villages. Hildenbrand’s images were taken mostly in the Alsace and Champagne sectors during 1915 and 1916.
Hildenbrand’s film was less sensitive than other contemporary films and required longer exposures as such his subjects would have had to remain still while he took their photograph, meaning that many of the photographs would have been somewhat staged. But this does not detract significantly from their insight into life in the German trenches. Arguably the vividness of the photographs’ colours bring the period to life much faster than the black and white contemporary photographs were are used to seeing of the First World War.

While Hildenbrand was the only German photographer to use a colour process during the war he has a counterpart in French photographer Jules Gervais-Courtellemont. Gervais-Courtellemont used the Lumiere’s Autochrome technique and took photographs during the battles of the Marne and Verdun. Both Gervais-Courtellemont and Hildenbrand later worked for National Geographic after the war,
