Just saw #GazaFightsForFreedom by @AbbyMartin and @MikePrysner of @EmpireFiles in Toronto last night

Screening hosted by @mexieYT
Panel included editor Taylor Gill
@AbbyMartin @MikePrysner @EmpireFiles @mexieYT Wonderful film. Important. Beautifully shot. Well made

Gazan journalists contributed footage and interviews - and did so on four hours of electricity per day

Please everyone see this movie

@AbbyMartin @MikePrysner @EmpireFiles @mexieYT Film opens with a family on a beach. I have seen many maps of Gaza before. Much of its border is coastline. I have seen very few images of Gaza beaches.

Just as I was reflecting on this, and the interesting choice to open with it, @AbbyMartin's narration explains:

Meet, @mathilde_frot👇😡👉“Reporter” Who Wrote This Disgusting, Slanderous & Deceitful Hit-Piece Against Me, To Use As A Smear Tool Against Chris Williamson…👈ARTICLE

The @nytimes today had a big piece on the killing of Razan (or as they write it, "Rouzan") al-Najjar in both the print & online editions. They invested a lot of reporting/writing resources in it. It reached some important conclusions. But... > (thread)…

Why is it that #Israel, #US & #UK Govts don’t find the massacre of defenseless civilians, concentrated in a densely populated strip of land,by a hi-tech air force simply unacceptable?

Natural #Gas - #Gaza has it: #Israel wanted it. That simple.
Anyone who thinks that the siege has to do with 'terrorism' or 'defending Israel', or for that matter the history of the conflict, are missing the elephant in the room:…
#IDF's #Gaza assault is to control #Palestinian Natural Gas, avert Israeli energy crisis.
2014 - #Israel's Def. Min. has confirmed that military plans to 'uproot #Hamas' are about dominating #Gaza's #Gas Reserves.

To quote @gazawia -
"May 15, 1948 is what Palestinians call the #Nakba - a day when we lost our homeland. The Nakba never ended; Palestinians continue to be denied a homeland and the right to exist. The #GreatMarchOfReturn is #Gaza‘s popular form of resistance to demand return"
#MyNakbaStory - my family were natives of the Old City, but in the late 1930's purchased a home in Bak'a/Katamon area of West Jerusalem. Very shortly after, unrest began as zionist militias ratcheted up the violence in anticipation of 1948
My great grandfather attempted to remain in his home in West Jerusalem for as long as possible, but eventually had to flee with his many young children in tow. My grandmother remembers her father admonishing her mother, telling her "No need to take so many things! We'll be back!"
