Amputee at GRM May 11 2018 (GRM on Twitter) May 12 2018
This Palestinian lost his leg after an Israeli terrorist sniper shot him at the Great Return March. He must still be adjusting psychologically, physically, & socially to his new condition but came to protest again yesterday. The Arabic word on his T-shirt means ” Returning,” referring to the refugees he’s protesting for. Israel targets the young precisely to disable political resistance but conditions of apartheid & genocide have made the participation of those with disability necessary. In the new society they will build, those with disability will not be seen as lesser than but as equals.
