Latuff's video statement for the Palestinians (in Portuguese and Arabic)

A Powerful Statement of Solidarity From the Famous Brazilian Political Cartoonist, Carlos Latuff, in Solidarity With the Palestinian People in This Time of Struggle Against Zionist Genocide.

Muito Obrigado, Carlos!

My Rough English Translation

This message is to the Palestinian people in Gaza and the Palestinians everywhere. As you know, since 1999 I have been supporting the Palestinian struggle with my art, political cartoons and words. I constantly follow the news of your suffering and the slaughter inflicted on you by the Israelis. In spite of the distance between us I am always with you. I am sorry that my drawings can't stop missiles. I do everything to raise my voice in your support. The Zionists have tried to silence this voice. I am with you completely. I am united with you and I suffer with you. The Palestinians are different from other people. You can kill a Palestinian but you cannot make him kneel down. The Palestinian people are strong and will continue resisting. In the face of the total world silence about this latest Zionazi holocaust, the Palestinians keep on resisting. Victory will be with you, and you can always count on me for support in words and art. Thank you.
