Palestinian journalists organized a protest.

Sunday, May 23, 2021. New York City – For many years Palestinians have been saying that Israel is a terrorist state. These videos show zionism is terrorism.

Zionism is fascism. Zionism is colonialism. Zionism is white supremacy. Zionism is racism. Zionism is imperialism. Zionism is capitalism. Zionism is neoliberalism.

On Saturday, May 22, 2021, thousands of anti-zionist Jews, Palestinians, Native Americans, Latinas, Latinos, Blacks, Asians, and others rallied and marched in Queens to defend Palestine. The protest was organized by Within our Lifetime • United for Palestine and NY4Palestine.

Ruptly says, “Members of Gaza’s press organised a protest on Sunday (May 23, 2021) to condemn the alleged targeting by Israel of media organisations during the recent escalation of hostilities.

Protesters held signs denouncing the silencing of Palestinian voices that they believe the Israeli government aimed for. The march starting from Jawhara Tower, which includes various media institutions, and continued until the neighbourhood of Rimal at the Jala Tower, which was demolished during the airstrikes.

“This demolition that we see here behind me is the demolished Al Shorouq Tower in downtown Gaza City, the neighbourhood of Rimal. It used to include numerous press offices ranging from television stations to news agencies. In addition to destroying this, the Israeli forces destroyed dozens of towers and residential buildings,” said journalist Saud Abu Ramadan.

The demolished Jala Tower included regional media offices like Al Jazeera as well as international media organisations like Associated Press.

The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) defended their decision to target the building and said, “the building also hosted offices of civilian media outlets, which the Hamas terror group hides behind and uses as human shields.”

*SOUNDBITES*

SOT, Saud Abu Ramadan, Palestinian journalist (Arabic): “The Israeli occupied committed horrible crimes against the Palestinian people in general and against Gaza’s journalists and their institutions in particular. This demolition that we see here behind me is the demolished Al Shorouq Tower in downtown Gaza City, the neighbourhood of Rimal. It used to include numerous press offices ranging from television stations to news agencies. In addition to destroying this, the Israeli forces destroyed dozens of towers and residential buildings.”

SOT, Youssef Abu Kweik, Palestinian journalist (Arabic): “Our message to the world is that the Palestinian media, which was able to document the Israeli crimes, has the right to work in better conditions. The Palestinian media worked under complicated conditions over the course of the 12 days [or airstrikes]. We came to speak up about the Israeli crime that was committed in Gaza against the civilians destroyed 23 press institutions, ranging from complete to partial destruction. Israel tried to censor the image of the war but the Palestinian side succeeded in reporting about it.”
