Vittorio, you are a true winner and will live forever in our hearts

Today’s protest against the apartheid wall was dedicated to Vittorio Arrigoni, the Italian freedom fighter who gave his life for Palestine. He lived in Gaza since 2008 and his mission was to protect the Gazawis from Israeli harrassment and killing, acting as a human shield. Also, he reported to Europe what was really going on during the atrocious war on Gaza in 2008, speaking out against the horror and the lies of Israeli propaganda. Vittorio, you will always be remembered for your dreams of peace, justice and freedom for Palestine.

Our demonstration went on for about 3hours. When we approached the wall with pictures of Vittorio, the soldiers started shooting tear gas at us. A Palestinian journalist got shot in his leg with a tear gas projectile, while taking pictures. He got released from the hospital a few hours after the protests finished. As usually, the soldiers tried to arrest the protesters, shooting also sound bombs. But they didn’t succeed.

We believe that it is Israel’s new strategy to pay traitors to the Palestinian cause, in order to execute brave Internationals who devoted their lives to us, and to peace in homeland Palestine. And we are very well aware that the atrocious murdering of our beloved Italian brother Vittorio, as well as the horrifying assasination of Juliano Mer Khamis of the Freedom Theatre in Jenin 10 days earlier happened in order to crush the International solidarity with us. Who else is it, that actually profits from these killings? But still, we are hopeful, since our friends and supporters abroad know very well that we very much treasure their support and honor them and would do everything to protect them as much as we can from any harm. We miss Vittorio and Juliano so much and their violent death is very very painful for all of us.

I watched many many videos of Vittorio in the past days. In one of them he spoke about Nelson Mandela, who said: “A winner is a dreamer that never gives up.” Vittorio, you are a true winner. Your ideas and dreams and your kind soul will live forever in our hearts.


About Saeed Amireh

My name is Saeed Ibrahim Amireh, I am 18 years old and I have been born and raised in Ni'lin, in the Westbank. During the summertime, I love to sleep on the rooftop of our house. When I see the beautiful stars, I dream to travel to far away places and meet people from all over the world. I can see the Mediterranean Sea from our roof. Often, I imagine what it is like to be at the beach and see the sun go down. I have never been to the sea because Israel does not allow us to go there. One week before the final exams in 12th grade, Israeli soldiers raided our house in the middle of the night, locked the whole family but me in a room, beat me, destroyed my room and arrested me. I was in jail for 4 months. They kept me in a small cell in complete darkness, with mice and cockroaches everywhere. They beat, threatened, and interrogated me constantly. To this date I know nothing about why they even arrested me, other than to punish my father for his non-violent activity in the "Popoular Committee Against The Wall". I've always dreamt to study and become a communication engineer. But since my father is in jail, me and my older brother have to work and take care of our mother and our small siblings. I miss my father so much, I would give anything for him to be free. But I am not even allowed to go and visit him in jail. Only my mother is allowed; she could go visit him for the first time after he was imprisoned for 4 months. Like all the villagers of Ni'lin, I wish I could taste the flavour of freedom just once.

  13. However, you need to follow the instructions given below in order to check the credibility of
    a company before booking an airline ticket through it. A person can avail of
    travel insurance fairly easily with the different variety of policies that one can pick
    from. Given the high profile nature of western kidnappings by various insurgent groups, and the
    regular acts of terrorism and hostility to Western troops, it
    is no surprise that no travel insurance companies
    will insure travellers to the troubled country.
