Israel's war on Gaza

Undertones: Critical voices from Israel, inhibited voices from Palestine

“Following, researching and reporting on Israel’s war on Gaza after the traumatic Hamas attack on October 7 has been collectively devastating.”

“Reports of hate-driven, horrifying military violence and the toll it takes on Gaza’s imprisoned population under a brutal siege are compounded by narratives intensifying anti-Semitism and Islamophobia globally. Human rights norms and laws face an existential challenge along with Gaza itself”

Excellent overview of a difficult subject by @globalvoices

“Over the last 45 years, the Islamic Republic of Iran has weaponized textbooks, religious debates, movies and series, city walls, and even cemeteries to impose cultural violence and institutionalize its dominance, particularly over religious minorities.”

‘Our oceans are in trouble. As our climate changes, driven by the unchecked burning of fossil fuels, our seas are transforming before our eyes. Marine heatwaves are surging, coral reefs are on the brink, ice sheets are melting at an alarming rate, currents are slowing and seas are rising. Put simply: the climate crisis is an ocean crisis.’ climatecouncil.org.au/resource
