70th Anniversary of Al Nakba: ‘Great March of Return’ boldly affirms Palestinians’ right of return to their homeland

The Great March of Return begins on Land Day March 30, 2018.

The Great March of Return, that began on Land Day (March 30) will shortly culminate on May 15, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Al Nakba (the catastrophe).

Sighting (photo supplement): Hands off Jerusalem! Affirm the rights of the Palestinian people!

The Palestinian people have risen in a mighty storm, supported by the peoples of the world, against the declaration by U.S. President Donald Trump that the U.S. considers Jerusalem (Al Quds) to be the capital of Israel. We stand as one with the heroic Palestinian people and their resistance to the Zionist occupation and U.S. attempts to control the affairs of all peoples or destroy what they cannot control. Strikes and days of rage are underway across Palestine, with courageous men, women and youth confronting the Israeli Occupation forces. Solidarity protests are being held outside U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide. Join In! Continue reading

Sighting. Trees that refuse to die no matter what

Trees have been around for about 370 million years, and as you can see from these incredible pictures, there’s a good reason why they’ve survived for so long. Whether they’re growing in the middle of gale-force winds, on the tops of rocky platforms, inside concrete tunnels, or even growing out of each other, trees know how to survive in places that few living organisms can, which explains why the planet is host to around three trillion adult trees that cover an estimated 30 per cent of the earth’s land. Considering that plants produce the vast majority of the oxygen that we breathe, we should all think ourselves very fortunate that trees are as resilient as they are. We wouldn’t even be here if they weren’t. Thanks
