Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.

The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).

Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos. 

The blues have a new meaning.

Reenactment of my mug shot. Bahahah. What?

6 beds, ink and one story (excerpts of my jail journals) →

‘It’s day 5 of me being in prison. Half of the time I spent from one
bus (box) to the next. This strategy is designed to break you. To make
you dread going to court and to crave stability, even if it comes in
the form of an unjust jail.
It’s day 5 and I’m already accustomed to the cockroaches. They’ve
become the reminder of outside interaction. It’s only day 5 and I’ve
become so indifferent. So numb.
I know I did nothing wrong so let them do what they want. I’ve read
too many books, I know better, I know the conviction rate is 99.7% for
Palestinians, innocent or not. And we’re all innocent.’

No care in the world

Because I can

In Nadeem Nuwwarah’s high school, they named a hall after the martyr. Nadeem was murdered in cold blood by and Israeli soldier on Thursday, the very day that marks our Nakba, the catastrophe. Nadeems photos haunt the school. We will not forget.

Nobody in the world, nobody in history, has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them.

much love and solidarity to the nigerian people having to deal with the kidnappings of those girls, the encroaching threat of imperialism, and random internet know-it-alls hijacking their tragedy for their own pet causes.

Mama,

When I told you I was broken, you said that’s okay. It just means there are more pieces of you to love.
