An activist from the International Solidarity Movement blocks IDF soldiers from shooting at protesting Palestinians in Gaza, saying “You’re shooting at kids, don’t you understand that? Just pull back!“
Guys. This is a woman grappling with an armed soldier wearing nothing but a jacket.
I think we need to know her name.
this is why I wanted to be a war journalist. how powerful is this segment. why did it not make it on the news?
Because Western/US media supports Israel’s war crimes, just as the US funds and arms Israel’s ethnocidal regime.
In case anyone else is like me and didn’t get the Diana Prince joke at first and was super confused (Wonder Woman) and is curious to know who she is, she appears to be Huwaida Arraf (first link to her Twitter, second to her Wikipedia page).

This ancient and insane theater
To propagate our lust for life,
And flee the swarming wisdom of the streets. ”

THIS SHOW WAS THE BEST SHOW
Advert for Glow-worm electric fires (September 1968).
Imagine how hard just one bee works in a single day. Bees tend to at least 2,000 flowers daily, with tiny wings beating 10,000 times per minute, carrying pollen, and dramatically assisting our food supply.
Sound exhausting? Bees get thirsty, and they need safe water sources. The problem is water is not always available.
Bees need very shallow water to drink from. However, shallow water evaporates quickly. Birdbaths are not the best option as bees tend to drown if the water is not be shallow enough. As for river and lakes, bees risk their lives trying to get water in the presence of fishes, frogs, and other wildlife, not to mention the risk of being swept away in water currents.
To help hydrate our little pollinators, set up a water feeder by filling a pie pan with marbles and then water. The marbles give the bees a spot to land so that they don’t drown when they come to drink. No more drowned bees!
