Mairead Maguire - Nobel Peace laureate

From the Ramle Israeli prison to Gaza and the Palestinian People – 30 Jun 09

‘SPIRIT OF HUMANITY’

AS LONG AS
THE PEOPLE OF PALESTINE
HAVE NO LIBERTY, NO FREEDOM
THOSE OF US WITH A VOICE TO SPEAK
MUST SPEAK

AS LONG AS
THE CHILDREN OF GAZA
LIVE IN FEAR OF ISRAELI
BOMBS AND OCCUPATION
THOSE OF US WITH A VOICE TO SPEAK
MUST SPEAK

AS LONG AS
SIX MILLION PALESTINIAN REFUGEES
ARE DEPORTEES AROUND THE WORLD
THOSE OF US WITH A VOICE TO SPEAK
MUST SPEAK

AS LONG AS
MILLIONS OF GOD’S CHILDREN
ARE HUNGRY, IMPRISONED, AND WITHOUT HOPE
THOSE OF US WITH A VOICE TO SPEAK
MUST SPEAK

BECAUSE IT IS IN SPEAKING
WE FIND OUR LIBERTY, OUR FREEDOM
AND NO PRISON BARS CAN TAKE AWAY
OUR PEACE, OUR LOVE
WHICH IS THE TRUE SPIRIT OF HUMANITY
