Labelling of goods from occupied territories... and some other things BDS

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Tuesday, August 5, 2014, In : Activism 

As I write this, we are in the 4th successive week of Gaza being pounded by the Zionist war machine, the occupying army of Israel. Almost 2,000 Palestinians have lost their lives, with over 80% of them being civilians. As all but a handful of government leaders the world over, including the leaders of the Arab world, seems to have turned their back on Palestine, we watch the images of destruction coming out of Gaza with tears of sadness and a feeling of utter helplessness. As the Zionist enti...

RFP achieves victory at SAHRC

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Sunday, December 15, 2013, In : Activism 

It has been a long and difficult road to get to this point.

In fact, as I write this, it has been exactly a year since we first had an issue with race officials about flying the Palestinian flag in an official race.

To refresh your memory, this is what I speak of. Please see my posts of 16 May 2013 and 21 May 2013 (updated 15 July 2013).

Rogeema posted responses in the comments section of both articles, but they were subsequently deleted by the website moderator.

The following letter to Voice of the Cape's management points out just some of the points we want to hig...

Running for Palestine - A Right or a Fight?

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Thursday, May 16, 2013, In : Activism 

I haven't blogged about this issue yet, although it's been topical and debated in online circles for most of this year so far. It's time to break the silence and tell you what really happened, what the situation is right now and what is expected to happen from here on forward.

Late last year, myself and a couple of friends decided to combine our love for running with our activism activities, especially after I saw someone running with a Palestinian flag when I was out on a run one day. We wan...

Remembering Rachel Corrie - 10 years on, because we must NEVER forget...

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Friday, March 15, 2013, In : Activism 

Do you know who Rachel Corrie is?
It's important that you do, that you know how she died, what she stood for, and why her message must live on forever.

This is Rachel Corrie...

  

Rachel was a 23-year-old American peace activist from Olympia, Washington, who was crushed to death by an Israeli Defence Force bulldozer on 16 March 2003, while undertaking non-violent direct action to protect the home of a Palestinian family from demolition. The home belonged to a doctor and his family, whom Rachel an...
