Témoignage d'Haim Schwarczenberg Photographe activiste israélien

Hier j'ai publié sur la page https://www.facebook.com/Op.Revolution.France une photographie d'Haim Schwarczenberg avec le commentaire suivant :


""Quand le gouvernement viole les droits du peuple, l'insurrection est pour le peuple, et pour chaque portion du peuple le plus sacré des droits et le plus indispensable des devoirs". 

Une jeune femme israélienne s'interpose pour permettre à un enfant palestinien de 10 ans d'échapper à une arrestation.

Si nous avions tous le courage d'agir comme elle a agi, il n'y aurait plus d’oppression possible.

Cette photographie a été partagée plus d'un millier de fois et a succité prés de 200 commentaires demandant des précisions sur le contexte., j'ai donc contacté le photographe afin de le solliciter pour un témoignage.

Celui a accepté de nous répondre, merci à lui.






"It was Jerusalem Day, the day in which the state of Israel celebrates the 67' occupation of East Jerusalem, which it dabs "The unification of the city". On this day tens of thousands of people, mainly youth, held a march called "The Flag March", walking around Jerusalem, and specifically entering Palestinian neighbourhoods, holding Israeli flags, and chanting racist slogans, "Death to all Arabs", etc. Palestinians called for a counter-protest to the march, in Damascus Gate, which was joined by several dozens of Israelis. During this counter protest the soldier in the photo pushed this Palestinian boy to the floor, trying to arrest him. A young Israeli woman threw herself at the soldier, getting in his way, and allowing the kid time to get up and escape. 

There was high presence of police present throughout the entire demonstrations, including special units, and horsed policmen. While they allowed the racist flg march protestors to walk freely, they violently attacked the Palestinian protest, brutally arresting many protestors, running over others with horses, beating up many more. 

During the protest, I walked into the Muslim quarter of the Old City, into which the Flag March turned, where I reunited with two of my comrades.. At some poin, or another, the marchers started shouting and swearing at us, calling "Death to all leftists", throwing at us the sticks, which held the flags. The situation was very tensed. Only by a stroke of luck, we escaped unharmed. 

Attached are to links, which you might want to use. The first includes photos from that demonstration, and the second is a video of the aforementioned situation.
