On the road

I do remember well the journey towards Operazione Colomba’s Home when I first arrived in Albania. Few hours before I was greeting my parents at the airport, and soon after I found myself along roads never seen, trying to fill my eyes with the hundreds of images I could see from the car window.

They have the same feet

They have the same feet: a rather big big toe, regular toes, strong ankle.Same feet The heels are slightly cracked, the nails have an opaque dusty coat, of someone who walks barefoot on the floor of a farmers’ house.

The last effort… all #TogetherAtTuwani

For sure we were aware that the Palestinian Popular Resistance is something very powerful and precious…
For sure we knew of having many friends, volunteers, supporters…
However we could not imagine, to reach 85% of the fundraising #TogetherAtTuwani campaign in such a short time with this speed, with this push, with all this energy!
It is the strength, it is the love, it is the responsibility that we take on every day living in At-Tuwani, running in the stones and in the dust of the South Hebron Hills, supporting those who, with their lives, chose to resist in a nonviolent way to injustice and abuse.
But it is not over yet !!!
The climb is short now, but we still need a little effort…
