In the tiny village Ísafjörður in Iceland a few women who were fed up and horrified by the news of bloodshed and killings in Gaza, Palestine, got together and held a very symbolic demonstration in the plaza of their home town. They gave a little speach and read some poetry to a relatively big crowd that had gathered to take part. Clothes lines had been strung around the plaza and they hung children‘s clothes on the lines and encouraged other participants to do the same. In the end the demonstrators had hung up about 400 pieces of clothes – one for each child killed in the Israeli bombings on Gaza in July-August 2014. „That‘s more children than attend the children‘s school in our village“ one of the women said. „Hanging clothes on a line is an act of caring, something a parent does for the family and performing this common, everyday act in this horrible context was really moving. We feel for the children and families in Gaza and we wanted to express these feelings.“
