On this day, the cries of the Gazan child, Huda Ghalia, 11 years old, echoed around the world after the killing of her family by the Israeli air forces on the beach of Beit Lahiya in Gaza in 2006.

Huda's life was turned upside down when she witnessed the killing of her father and five of her siblings by a shell from an Israeli barge that targeted them while they were on a family trip to the beach.  

A Palestinian Videographer documented the details of the massacre, as his lens captured young Huda searching for her father and siblings before finding them lying in their own blood on the beach, causing her to scream and wail.

The pain did not stop at this massacre. A few years later, one of her sisters and her husband were killed during the Israeli aggression on Gaza in 2008-2009, adding a new page to their tragic story.

In the months that followed the incident, human rights centers documented the testimonies of Huda and the rest of her surviving family in their reports. However, as Huda says, "We did not achieve practical results that would lead to holding Israel accountable for its crimes."

In 2017, Huda managed to obtain a law degree and she still hopes to be able to file a case against the Israeli army in international courts.

Colombians have taken to the streets en masse across the country in the face of a looming right-wing coup and to support leftist President Gustavo Petro's reforms. Over 400 political leaders worldwide signed a statement warning, "A soft coup is underway in Colombia."

The massive protests broke out in Barranquilla, Medellín, Santa Marta, Cali, and Bogota, amongst other cities. President Gustavo Petro and Colombia's first Black Vice President, Francia Márquez, led the protest in the capital. In his speech, Gustavo Petro compared the situation to the right-wing coup against leftist Peruvian President Pedro Castillo. 

"A soft coup is a coup, it is a coup against the popular will." said Gustavo Petro, announcing, "if they dare to violate the popular mandate, the people of Colombia will come out from every corner, under every stone."

Since Petro's inauguration less than a year ago, the first leftist government in Colombia's history has been under fire from former generals, colonels, and members of the Colombian military. Furthermore, Colombia's strong far-right opposition, coupled with the influential oligarchy, sees its capital threatened by Petro's reforms and has coordinated campaigns against him.

The joint statement called "A soft coup is underway in Colombia" argues that a soft coup seeks "to protect the interests of Colombia's traditional powers from popular reforms that would raise wages, improve healthcare, protect the environment, and deliver 'total peace' to the country."

Sri Lankan riot police fired water cannons and tear gas at students who took to the streets of the capital Colombo calling for the release of detained protesters arrested during last year's anti-government uprising. Protesters also continue expressing dissatisfaction with Sri Lanka's worst-ever economic crisis.
It is the latest example of ongoing resistance to police brutality directed towards anti-government protesters since the start of the protests in March 2022. The exact number of arrests is unclear, but human rights organizations such as Amnesty International report that the number of arbitrary and mass arrests is in the thousands.

The economic crisis in Sri Lanka has been characterized by bankruptcy and shortages of essential goods, which triggered nationwide protests resulting in several deaths in early 2022. Former President Gotabaya Rajapaksa fled the country after protesters stormed the presidential palace in Colombo. Since then, President Ranil Wickremesinghe has been leading the country.
Sri Lanka's inflation rate reached 25.2 percent in May 2023, according to the government statistics department. The country's economy experienced a record contraction of 7.8 percent last year, marking the largest downturn since independence. The new Sri Lankan government agreed to a substantial $3 billion loan from the IMF in March.

Kenyan police arrested at least 11 people at protests against the devastating cost-of-living crisis and new tax reforms at the expense of the working class. The protests were met with tear gas fired by the police, while protesters held signs with messages such as "Poverty is man-made" and "Colonialism never ended."

The Communist Party of Kenya (CPK) said it stands "shoulder to shoulder" with the protests against the Finance Bill, calling it "an attack on the poor" which will "hit the vulnerable hardest." The CPK accused President William Ruto on Twitter of "declaring war with the people" following police violence against the protests. 

In May, Kenya witnessed a rise in inflation to 8 percent, according to the government's statistics office. The country was rocked by massive anti-government and anti-crisis protests in March, April and May with Amnesty International reporting that 12 protesters were killed.

Palestinian protesters confronted Israeli forces in the village of Nabi Saleh, after a funeral was held for a toddler killed by Israeli troops. 2-year-old Mohammad Haitham Al-Tamimi died days after being shot by Israeli forces while in his father's car outside the family home. 

Al-Tamimi was shot in the head during indiscriminate firing. His father, Haitham Tamimi, who was also wounded, said that the soldiers harass locals daily, “I live near the military watchtower that overlooks Nabi Saleh village. Everyday, I see the [soldiers] in the watchtower harassing the locals. Due to their fear and thirst for blood, they regarded us [my son and I] as a threat to them.”

With the murder of Al-Tamimi, the number of Palestinian children killed by Israeli troops so far this year has risen to 28, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
