We will never give up the fight to call out injustice, to express solidarity with those who suffer. Let us all work for a lasting peace and a better world for all people.

AWAYS with the Oppressed.
NEVER with the Oppressor.

    A belated Happy New Year, Comrades.

    A very interesting and extremely saddening experience – looking at those pictures & postcards of vibrant pre-war Jewish communities in Eastern Europe.
