#TeamFOA hold 55 press jackets outside BBC to represent journalists killed by Israel

May 16, 2022 /

In response to Shireen Abu Aqleh’s murder by Israeli sniper and 74 years of the ongoing Nakba, on Saturday #TeamFOA held 55 paper press jackets outside the BBC headquarters in London to represent the 55 journalists killed by Israel since 2000.

This was one of #TeamFOA’s many visual representations of the ongoing Nakba at Saturday’s march for Palestine in London, attended by 15,000 people.

Protesters also held 74 keys to commemorate 74 years of Israel’s ongoing illegal occupation and apartheid in Palestine, known as the ongoing Nakba.

Other powerful visuals included BBC headline posters highlighting the broadcasting company’s bias and problematic language when reporting on Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine, the tracing of hands in support of the #HandsOffAlAqsa campaign, which demands that Israel stops its attacks on Palestinian worshippers at Al-Aqsa as well as volunteers wearing ‘Boycott PUMA’ football bibs whilst kicking a football marked ‘Kick Apartheid Out’ to highlight PUMA’s sponsor of Israel Football Association.
