Dr. Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian doctor, Who has been treating hundreds of victims wounded in Israel’s ongoing assault, including young children. Dr. Gilbert says hospitals are operating without electricity, water and proper medical supplies, but adds: “As a medical doctor, my appeal is don’t send bandages, don’t send syringes, don’t send medical teams. The most important medical thing you can do now is to force Israel to stop the bombing and lift the siege of Gaza.” Gilbert recently recently submitted a report to the United Nations on the state of the Gaza health sector in 2014. “Where is the decency in the U.S. government allowing Israel this impunity to punish the whole civilian population in Gaza?”

so far, close to 170 Palestinians have been killed, among them 36 children and 24 women. And among the 1,232 injured, there are 346 children and 256 women. So, 50 percent of the injured are women and children. Now, this tells you that these attacks are not targeting the militarists in Palestine, in Gaza. These attacks are targeting the whole population in order to intimidate them and to force them to give up their resistance. I’ve been to Gaza through the last 17 years, and every time it is the same story. Israelis are accusing the Palestinians of attacking them; they have to defend themselves, they claim. Actually, the truth is the exact opposite. Israel is the attacker, the occupant. Internationally, they are responsible, according to the law, for the security and the well-being of the occupied population, whereas in fact Israel is doing their utmost to kill them and to make their life as miserable as possible through these seven years of siege.

May Allah (swt) bless this man! I pray that this atrocity will end soon but if it does not, InshAllah I’ll have the bravery to do what Dr. Gilbert does. Pray for Gaza!

Hey look, a white person holding up the uncredited words of an anishinaabe woman who was pointing the blame squarely AT white people. fml. White people need to either start crediting alanis obomsawin or stop using this quote altogether

White people take your freedom, then they take your words about them taking your freedom.

The NYPD storming into people’s homes before dawn on June 4th wearing body armor and carrying assault weapons, with battering rams to break down doors while helicopters hovered overhead were the actions of an occupying army and not of an institution that serves the public. Was putting guns in the faces of small children and grandparents and forcing a young women to lay on the floor half naked while male officers ransacked her room a display of the Courtesy and Respect New York City officials claim their cops give to the citizenry?

Nonviolent Communication can hurt people

People who struggle interpersonally, who seem unhappy, or who get into a lot of conflicts are often advised to adopt the approach of Nonviolent Communication.

This is often not a good idea. Nonviolent Communication is an…

this is particularly interesting, because I’ve learned more about non-violent communication in the past couple years; however, I do think that when trying to gauge how bad a situation is, NVC can be used effectively. if someone is using those communication terms and is still being brushed aside, then it can be reassuring to someone who is being ignored or abused that their situation is real and not imagined.

idk but my headcanon is that whenever steve and bucky are gonna meet up with each other, bucky checks all the alleyways and places like that just to make sure that steve isnt being beat up

Bucky eventually not even checking if it’s Steve anymore and becoming an accidental neighbourhood vigilante because every time he sees some small skinny guy being beaten up in an alley way he charges in like a rhino and saves the guy and goes “you stupid fuck steve” and they look at him and go “who the fuck are you”
