‘A camera and not a gun’: photojournalism as my weapon for justice

By Hamde Abu Rahme

Photojournalist Hamde Abu Rahme writes, "Palestinian journalists defy the continuous harassment and abuse, and thanks to the internet and outlets like Mondoweiss, we are succeeding.

You can buy my book. And you can donate to Mondoweiss, which supports the work of me and others seeking to spread the truth."
