Women Plea for Peace in Israel

 
Women Plea for Peace in Israel:Shhhhhhhh, security!
They tell us not to speak of unemployment,
because the security situation is so bad.
They tell us not to talk about the municipal workers who haven’t received their salaries, or sexual violence, or hungry children, not right now, because we’re at war and there’s no one to talk to.
And not about the corruption of politicians,
because we’ll soon be leaving Gaza.
And not about selling the country to the World Bank
at end-of- season prices,
because who knows anything about that bank and anyway
we’re in the midst of war.
And not about foreign workers,
racism,
clean air and water,
selling women into bondage,
road accidents,
or breast cancer.
WE ARE FURIOUS
ABOUT THE OCCUPATION
and about
The capitalists who create this war,
The generals who continue to sleep well at night,
And the governments of occupation that bring us more and more destruction, killing, and hate,
37 YEARS OF OCCUPATION AND OPPRESSION ARE
37 YEARS TOO MANY!
