Lifeline to Gaza: the VivaPalestina story

PressTV has produced an excellent documentary centred on VivaPalestina‘s laudable efforts in bringing relief to Gaza. It follows the aid convoys through its extraordinary travails through several countries to reach Gaza in the wake of israel’s latest and worst atrocities to date. The highs (Libya’s generosity) and lows (the Egyptian regime’s intimidatory security escort and shameful sabotage) are all there in this recommended viewing. UK efforts are now being followed by efforts to organise convoys in the US. All six segments (just over 8 minutes each) follow.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
