Topics on Palestine

“Now that I have seen, I am responsible.”

I’ve been writing about Palestine since 2013.

For me, it’s more than a cause or a topic of my academic research. It’s a place and people that I have fallen in love with and care deeply about.

There is no objectivity and neutrality when we talk about Palestine.

When we talk about different forms of oppression, we have to clearly name what they are and who’s doing it to whom.

As Brazilian educator and thinker Paulo Freire says,

There’s no such thing as neutral educational process.
Education either functions as an instrument to bring about conformity or freedom.

I claim the mainstream narrative doesn’t need reinforcement – it needs questioning. That’s what I do in my project and encourage you to speak out against this shameful ongoing injustice.
