A school in Brazil had all its students protesting after a transgender girl got reprimanded after changing into a female uniform. All the students, including the boys, wore a skirt to school on September 1st in a way to show support to the girl, who still can’t wear her female uniform but the school says that they’re “reviewing the code of conduct.”
Solidarity. It is a powerful thing. And better yet, it is something every human is equipped to provide.
"We used to joke and say: “We wish the school would get demolished”, and it did."
this is beautiful
I’m in love with this
Disarming Design from Palestine is an inclusive design label that presents functional products from Palestine, that provide an alternative narrative from what you might usually find in the high street. The collection includes objects such as hourglasses that use cement from the separation wall, a dress made out of one keffiyeh, embroidered car decorations, scarfs depicting landscapes, olive leaves as earrings and an impossible chess game with water tanks and watch towers. The growing collection of products is presented on-line and through a traveling exhibition.*
As a collection it aims to represent Palestinian culture in its current reality and reflect upon the function of art in situations of conflict.
The goods are developed, designed and produced by contemporary designers, artists and students in collaboration with local artisans and producers.
During several ‘create-shops’ they engage in an enriching design dialogue with small emerging businesses and international colleagues. The project aims to catalyze the development of design as a discourse in Palestine.
Very correct and to do less would mean you’re not paying attention.

in 1974, the Israeli Air Force bombed the Palestinian Refugee Camps in South Lebanon, destroying Nabatieh Refugee Camp and partially destroying Ein El Helweh Refugee Camp.
Meanwhile, the Israeli authority were denying the very existence of the Palestinian people among which the refugees forced to exile during the outburst of the Nakba and the launch of the ethnic cleansing campaign also know as Plan D (Dalet) in 1948. This denial is to be linked to the memoricide of the Nakba, designed to prevent Israel from any form of accountability regarding its crimes and destruction of Palestine, a once multi-ethnic territory turned into a borderless state forever expending in compliance with the settler colonial ideology that is Zionism.
