“Don’t get used to it, don’t forget”

Mireia Gabilondo, Aitziber Garmendia, Josean Bengoetxea and Itziar Atienza have read the declaration at the end of the Wind Comb. It was the title of the statement, “Don’t get used to it, don’t forget.” They point out that they do not want to get acquainted with “destruction and infinite suffering”, they do not want to get used to the “warm complicity of the ‘free and civilised world’ led by the United States and persecuted by the European Union”.

They don’t want to get used to “hospitals and ambulances that bombard daily, amputations without anesthesia, famines, humiliations, incarceration and systematic torture.”

They don’t want to get used to “killing a child every ten minutes in Gaza, losing one or two legs every day.”

At the end of the declaration, requests have been made to the political leaders and to the European Union: “Letting time pass makes us accomplices, with arms crossed and without calling things by name. Because it is genocide, systematic apartheid. That is why we ask our leaders and politicians to abandon all their trade, military and diplomatic relations with Israel. In the face of the massacre, we urge the European Union to take firm steps to force the aggressor to put an end to his violent wave: the definitive ceasefire, the end of the occupation and the end of violence against innocent men, women and children.”
