This is Amir Alreqeb’s first passport he got so he can leave Gaza to get treatment.
I want everyone to reblog this. I know no one will, because this isn’t a picture of a skinny girl or a deep meaningful quote. This is deeper than everything, how can someone ignore what’s happening in Gaza at the moment. This is one example of many innocent lives being threatened for no reason. This breaks my heart.
More than 150 men, women and children squeezed into tiny wooden boxes opposite Parliament in London this morning to put pressure on the Government to help lift Israel’s illegal blockade on Gaza.
The protest sought to show the conditions Palestinians are and have been living in for 7 years. Israel openly admits targeting the civilians of Gaza with collective punishment - (illegal under international law) by - among other ways - putting them on a “diet”.
