You Can’t Bomb the Future

Every day I see another face that haunts me; a father holding his dead infant, a mother bereft, a child looking out of the phone and straight through my soul. The barbarity of the Israeli assault on Gaza is harrowing me in a way that other wars haven’t- but each of those faces shows very clearly that the effort that the empire is putting into this will all be lost: because you can bomb bakeries, hospitals, schools, mosques, families and children but you cannot bomb the future. Free Palestine.

A young child’s head and shoulders are drawn with thick black lines. His face is downcast, serious. Behind him, a pattern of flames, or plumes of smoke in gray radiate upwards. Above him, black text in a handmade, angular font, states, “You can’t bomb the future.”
