Listening to Palestinian American musician, Anees, at the Amnesty International AGM.

“Life is to short not to be free.”

“Art is power, art is freedom, art is de-colonization, art is power-to-the-people. Art is spiritual. Art is an expression of who you are as a human. Anyone who has listened to and appreciated my music may not know it but they have also connected to Palestine and the Palestinian people.”

“Art is a superpower.”

“Palestinian - Christian - Former Attorney - HipHop Artist, you might think these things are contradictory but your individual experiences and background are what make you unique.”

“The people that are profiting from the suffering of others, their greatest fear is the hope of others.” “Don’t give up.”

Write for Rights 10/22/2022

Getting a preview of this year’s Write for Rights, possibly the world’s largest annual letter writing event. Last year more than 4 million actions were taken worldwide. Will GCC contribute letters in 2022?

Write for Rights Throughout history, protest has been a powerful tool for change, but this precious right is under attack. Many governments around the world are restricting people’s right to protest, because they fear change. They want to maintain the status quo. They want to keep people divided.
