ASWAT RESPONS TO THE ATTACKS AGAINST GAYS IN TEL-AVIV

Mensaje original --------
Asunto:
[womeninblack] Aswat responds to the attacks against gays in Tel-Aviv - ASWAT (Palestinian Gay Women)


Aswat- Palestinian Gay Women- laments the tragic death of the two youngsters at the Tel-Aviv gay center Saturday evening. Aswat strongly condemns the horrendous attack on the center of LGBT community in Tel-Aviv, resulting in the killing of gay and lesbian activists and severely wounding several others. We call upon our partners and supporters to fight all forms of crimes of hatred, specially, ones directed against the LGBT community. Tel-Aviv, supposedly, a symbol of pluralism and diversity witnessed the horrifying event of gay and lesbian killing emphasizing the extreme escalation of homophobia in the world in general and the Israel in specific. The horrific crime followed a wave of massive incitement of hatred against the LGBT community in Israel, and it is unfortunate that the Israeli government condemns these crimes but frequently tolerates verbal attacks directed from senior government officials against the LGBT community in the country. Aswat stands in solidarity with all LGBT organizations and activist in the country; Palestinians and Israelis alike, and calls for an immediate stand against the atrocious harassments and killings of LGBT individuals. We will march together, hand in hand, in Haifa, Tel-Aviv, and Jerusalem against hatred and discrimination, and raise our voices, the voices of justice and freedom.

In Solidarity with all victims of Hate Crimes

Aswat - Palestinian Gay Women -

There is difference and there is power. And who holds the power decides the meaning of the difference.
