Aaron Bushnell's Suicide: A Call to Conscience and Collective Responsibility
Aaron Bushnell, a member of the US Air Force, tragically ended his life by self-immolation in front of the Israeli embassy in Washington. His act was a stark protest against the unyielding support provided by the US to the ongoing violence inflicted by the Israeli military in Gaza. At just twenty-five years old, Bushnell's premature death serves as a poignant statement against this support. As flames engulfed his body, his cries rang out: 'Free Palestine, Free Palestine.' I watched the video of his suicide only once.
