Did anybody else find the UK BLM tweets about Palestine to be a bit incongruous this weekend? I cant put my finger on it but just seemed like a strange time for a UK specific Twitter feed to focus on another part of the world given the live focus on domestic issues at the moment.
Not sure where I'm going with this. The subject of Palestine is very close to my heart. My wife's family were bulldozed out of Palestine and violently displaced by Israeli forces in the 70s. It's the reason she grew up in the UAE and not Palestine.
I guess it just felt a bit strange timing for a UK specific BLM social media account to be talking about somewhere else. Not saying I have a problem with it, just feels like odd timing.
There's a long tradition for broadly leftwing campaigns to show solidarity with campaigns they perceive as 'sister' campaigns, so it could be that.
