The UN Convention of the Rights of the Child Article 6 states:
“1. States Parties recognize that every child has the inherent right to life.
2. States Parties shall ensure to the maximum extent possible the survival and development of the child.”

A child’s right to life should not be secondary to a state’s right to self-defence.

War is an absolute failure of imagination, scientific and political. That a war can be represented as helping a people ‘feel good’ about themselves, or their country, is a measure of that failure.” – Adrienne Rich

Human lives should not be numbers. 1200+ people were killed in Israel and 100+ hostages are still being held by Hamas, including children. 30,000+ people have been killed in Gaza, including 13,000+ children, as well as hostages, with tens of thousands more lost under rubble, maimed and orphaned. 2 million people in Gaza, half of whom are children, have been displaced and are starving with nowhere to go. Food, water and basic human utilities, including for pregnant women, newborns and children, continue to be denied, violating international humanitarian law. The International Court of Justice ruled that the people of Gaza are at risk of genocide. The illegal expansion of settlements, apartheid conditions, imprisonment and execution of Palestinians, including children, continue in the West Bank. Antisemitism and Islamophobia are on the rise globally.

Ceasefire now, end the violence, end the occupation, justice and security for ALL people. There can be no peace without justice.

Lana Bastašić: I grew up in Bosnia, amid fear and hatred of Muslims. Now I see Germany’s mistakes over Gaza.

Deborah Feldman: Germany is a good place to be Jewish. Unless, like me, you’re a Jew who criticises Israel

Germany must face its issues over Israel and the past. Silencing a Palestinian author won’t help.
