We Palestinians trapped inside the bloodied and besieged Gaza Strip call on conscientious people all over the world to act, protest and intensify the boycotts, divestments and sanctions against Israel until it ends this murderous attack on our people and is held to account.

In case you were wondering what Gazans want you to do in order to help. 

We call for a final end to the crimes and oppression against us. We call for:

  • Arms embargos on Israel, sanctions that would cut off the supply of weapons and military aid from Europe and the United States on which Israel depends to commit such war crimes;
  • Suspension of all free trade and bilateral agreements with Israel such as the EU-Israel Association agreement;
  • Boycott, divestment and sanctions, as called for by the overwhelming majority of Palestinian civil society in 2005

these are the biggest problems within the current feminist movement imo:

  • liberal feminism- the more women climbing corporate ladders and getting ahead in capitalism and oppressing other women the better
  • white feminism- completely ignoring the intersection of racism and misogyny, only focusing on the struggles of white middle class women
  • pop feminism- forgetting about feminist writers and academics but idolising pop stars who said a vaguely feminist thing once
  • sex posi feminism- rebranding women’s objectification and sexualisation as empowering, coercively calling women misogynistic slurs, and embracing fetishes of rape and abuse
  • choice feminism- the idea that any choice a woman makes is feminist while totally ignoring the fact that choices aren’t made in a vacuum and oppression doesn’t become empowerment just because you say it does
  • het feminism- framing feminism around how to have more comfortable romantic and sexual relationships with men rather than liberating women from oppressive systems such as compulsory heterosexuality. distancing themselves from and stigmatising “hairy man hating lesbians”
  • fashion feminism- wearing the denim jackets and reading rookie and listening to riot grrrl and repeating slogans but not actually learning anything

like it’s just endlessly frustrating seeing so many young feminists led down all these bad paths (i’ve been through most of them) and i’d love to see a shift more towards potent, revolutionary, radical feminism

we’ve gotta fight for it sisters
