"فلسطين لست وحدك - نشرة الاخبار الموحدة"

"Palestine, you are not alone." This is one of the most powerful things I have seen in a long time. Lebanon’s major networks, representing eight partisan views, united to give a unified broadcast on all of their channels in solidarity with the Palestinian people. An anchor from each station introduces the report, and then two anchors from rival stations say, "it is the Arab people’s fate to free the occupied land. The enemy is the same, and the stances towards the Palestinians are the same." Each station then shows a different report highlighting the history and struggle of the Palestinian people. The broadcast ends with a poem by Mahmoud Darwish. Even if you don’t know Arabic, I implore you to watch the introduction, it is very moving.

Holy crap! This made me cry! Well done Lebanese news channels! Now if only the Lebanese people would stop being racist towards Palestinian refugees and Syrian refugees, I’d be properly proud of all of you. Seriously though! This is super powerful! Well done!

You’re allowed to criticize institutions (read: university) you’re a part of. You’re allowed to want to see change. Don’t let anyone tell you you should “be grateful” because the institution is providing a service for you and you should just “accept” things as they are

'Jomeh' (meaning Friday), was written by the famous Persian lyricist, Shahyar Ghanbari in the early 1970s. It was initially released as the video music of the movie, “Khodahafez Rafigh” (meaning Goodbye Friend - Directed by Amir Naderi), in 1971. The song was made about the February 1971 Siahkal Marxist guerrilla uprising and its subsequent oppression by the Pahlavi dynasty.”
