’The Culmination of Unchilding in Gaza’
The talk will focus on the centrality of death and the flesh in comprehending the barbarities of unchilding, arguing that the unchilded flesh in Gaza points to the failure of the discourse of humanism and children’s rights.
Tom Hurndall was a student at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU). He was fatally wounded by the Israeli Defence Forces while protecting Palestinian children in Gaza. He died on January 13th 2004.

What more can be said about the situation in Gaza?
How many more photos and videos do we have to see?
This world has made Palestinians showcase their pain and suffering, and their maimed and murdered bodies, but it is still not enough.
While our lives go on, the people of Gaza are living an endless nightmare under Zionist brutality.
After destroying everything in their way, and shattering people’s entire homes and hopes, the Israeli military is now attacking Rafah, the so-called “safe zone” that is now sheltering millions of Palestinians inside tents.
People are asking “where are we supposed to go?” After 131 days of genocide, people are still asking this question, and the atrocities have still not ended!
Israel will not rest until it finishes its project: ethnically cleansing the Palestinians. Genocide has always been part and parcel of this ideology and strategy.
But Israel must know this: We too will not rest until we put an end to this monstrosity.
We too will not rest until Palestine is free!
The streets here have spoken: Manchester stands with Palestine. Manchester stands with the oppressed, and Manchester fights alongside those fighting for freedom in Palestine. Join the demonstration on Saturday, 17 February, 12:00pm, Piccadilly Gardens.
Bring flags, placards and plenty of noise.
Stop Bombing Rafah
Stop Israel’s Genocide in Gaza
5.30pm Tuesday 14th February
St Peter’s Square M2 5PD
Call for an Emergency demonstration as Israel has overnight begun carpet bombing Rafah where 1.5 million Palestinians have already been put in to camps and tents, ethnically cleansed from Northern and central Gaza. These displaced populations were told Rafah was a “safe zone”. The worst horror of Israel’s mass murderous attacks could now be unfolding, as all this is happening amidst starvation and disease spreading across Gaza, part of Israel’s plan to exterminate the Palestinians. Last night hundreds were killed including many more children.
Take action immediately in Manchester. Don’t stop until these heinous crimes against humanity are stopped. Don’t stop until Palestine is free.
