I am not sure where this "la la la" came from exactly: denial, fear, or threat. But it is surely a sign of weakness pic.twitter.com/74IUGFRpfO
What can one says bout a government that is afraid of a part of a song ??? There are no words ... by erasing these few words , do you think you are erasing it from our memories ?? That’s beyond stupidity !! #ان_الثوره_تولد_من_رحم_الاحزان— Pierre (@petoleb) August 2, 2020

Words still so relevant today. A city so easy & yet so taxing to love. The "goverment" using tactics straight out of dystopian president snow of panem's playbook, decided to remove the most important line in the poem while commemorating the army.#ان_الثوره_تولد_من_رحم_الاحزان pic.twitter.com/a1FPF4XfNA— Rani Haddad (@4484) August 2, 2020
