This is a war against innocent people: men and women who have had their homes destroyed, mothers and fathers who have watched their children die, and three generations of people who have been robbed, displaced, and are living in refugee camps with some of the worst conditions in the world. This is a war against humanity.

Generation Justice and the UNM Student for Justice in Palestine presented a poetry slam event featuring local community activists and Poets. Renowned Palestinian American Activist and poet Remi Kanazi was joined at the event by local activists and poets.
“If you speak out, speak out ethically!” Remi Kanazi eloquently stated at the Night of Poetic Justice. His stern demeanor ingrained that simple statement into my memory.

No loopholes. No exceptions.
After a few short minutes I realized I knew less about the Israeli–Palestinian conflict than I had thought. I had known that the conflict was over land that the Israelis felt a certain right to and that the land had since been divided into a Jewish and Palestinian state. I searched for a deeper history. After a few hours of research, though, it didn’t seem that I had learned a significant amount of information. Most pieces seemed one sided and discussed Zionism and Israeli issues in the conflict which I had admittedly knew more about to begin with.
I care about my parents because they are the ones who brought me to this world. They get me anything I want. They take me to my basketball games and school. They help me in everything.
