Suspended struggle

The struggle itself is a right that is being taken away from us little by little for pretexts. The international community has actually shown reservations regarding the Palestinian situation, ruling that the legitimacy of the struggle is suspended. However, all of this did not eliminate the role of the Palestinian refugee youth in the struggle and in investing their asylum in support of a renewed struggle machine in Palestine. The refugee youth are a mobile speaking media that serves the Palestinian news, a corrective narrator of poisonous narratives broadcast through the enemy’s media machine, and a steadfast person who clings to “no settlement.

Loudspeaker is not restricted to anyone

There is an urgent need in the first place to show your opinion, to stand among a group of your people and influence them and they influence you, then you will find a way, know it, and pursue it. All this is an indispensable benefit in order for the judgment to be upright, and lest you make a tyrant over you, and you will end up disliking something. The firm human right to participate in political life is an instinct in the individual and the group whose goal is to make society equal and correct. The viewer alone is to look with his one eye without taking into account the opinions and perceptions of others, he is without creativity and intelligence, and to his immediate desire is closer than his need to refine and preserve his humanity. There is no doubt or dispute that the leadership or management or whatever its name is the system based on the order of the group, it is in its opinion, assessment, management and treatment of issues, capable of achieving and meeting the needs of the individual and the group of food, housing, security, dignity and others, also capable of tyranny and deny rights. And when a person renounces a right, it is as if he renounces his rights all at once. What about the oppressed refugee who does not know where the helm is? Of course, asylum and the complex factional situation does not justify the reluctance of the Palestinian society from its right. The political situation in Lebanon in its general image is also not a justification. Let us suppose that the factions are like them in a special case, but in some way, they have given them a head that represents us, that is, that represents the summary of what we want, and represents the summary of what we see. Our voice, our expressions and our dialect, so how can this political and administrative representation achieve the desired of it if our voice and our opinion did not reach it! There is no legitimacy for a voice that emanates from the people and is independent of them, and on the other hand, the voice of those who whispered or shouted in the midst of chaos does not reach. It is not difficult for a single group to gather and define its priorities and demands, even if its origin and branch differed, it has been placed today in one trench. The refugee people should appreciate the course of things, and realize that the main reason for the widening of their plight is that they stood by and watched in the face of successive crises, and that the consequences of their fear that silenced them made things worse. Know first and foremost that loudspeakers are not restricted by anyone, and there is no need for you to understand politics in order to participate in it. It is a definite legal right to demand your proper representation and to form a group under the name you desire, to ask a referendum, to hold a sit-in, to disobey, and to say in a clear and frank voice That a human being is in my group and we need this or we do not want this. This is a right related to being a human being in the first place, not to being a citizen of your country. International laws guarantee without discrimination the right to self- determination, as there is no legitimacy for some individuals to decide the fate of the group without referring to it.

Heresy alternative solution to work

It is not a secret to anyone how the drowned clings to a straw, and from behind the edges, hands with mighty capabilities and amazing generosity stand, throwing a straw to each drowned person. And I do not think we disagree that straw is a distraction from fear that neither saves nor enriches. So how did our armed organizations make the right to work and collect money that guarantees the preservation of human dignity and his need for life as a distraction that does not save? Let's first look at the UNRWA innovation in 'money for work' and take a peek at the hole it has made. The innovation says that a different number of young men and women in the process of their production will be periodically selected and pushed into the labor market, and they will be distributed according to their specializations or choices previously, in a questionnaire to work A period of time of approximately sixty days, and the financial equivalent is 'mere', but it is interrupted. What is the point of the innovation of UNRWA and other organizations that are concerned with employing the largest possible number of young people and getting rid of them quickly? This creates instability in money, livelihood and social life, and it does not even give enough time to gain the required experience in any job market. Our organizations are not far from it, but here blood may shed with sweat. The situation with the ongoing economic crisis in Lebanon and the collapse of the lira has become more complex. The number of young people at the entrances and alleys of the camps is suspiciously increasing, and two things are clear that military uniforms cannot conceal from them, and they are small the age of the militants, and their inability to bear arms, neither awareness nor jurisprudence in it. Far from the obvious estimation, that we are a people with a warlike tendency as a result of their circumstances and experiences, and that fire escalates into fire, so it is inevitable. Why do our organizations need this number of armed men in their orbits? The goal of the young man among them is to secure his strength and provide for his family, so he seeks a job in which he does not understand and does not know its purpose, nothing with a few dollars brings him except more chances of death, and his soul is filled with bullets. In summary, for all of the above, it seems clear that the person responsible for the Palestinian affairs in the diaspora has dramatically aborted his right to work, and they have convinced him that it is an alternative and indispensable solution.

New Beam of Life

To know how the New Beam of Life project helped the pregnant women and mothers we asked them about the services and their answers were as follows: “This project helped us a lot as the fees paid to the doctors are very simple compared to the medical fees paid in other hospitals, also the presence of the hospital inside the camp helped us a lot, as this doesn’t cost us extra fees (Transportation Fees). The Awareness sessions and the posters on the social media are of Great importance as they give us information which help us during pregnancy” “I can visit the doctor every month to make sure that my fetus is in a good health and this would be impossible to me without the help of the project services. If I want to visit a gynecologist outside the framework of the project, I will not be able to pay the fees because the prices for external examinations have become very high, and paying these amounts has become impossible in light of the difficult economic conditions we are passing through.” “This project was of a great importance to me as it helped me a lot before and after delivery especially by helping me in the milk needed for my baby as I find a lot of difficulties in getting it”. “I can take my daughter who was born within the project when she became sick to the doctor in the hospital benefiting from the card issued from the association. The low cost that I pay for consultation helps me by being able to pay for the medications that my daughter needs especially in the bad economic situations we are passing through”.
