I’m Wayne Jansson chief reporter and photographer at No Fibs, an Australian citizen journalism website.

Like a lot of people I’ve been watching on in horror at the genocide and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians by the Israeli government.

The Palestine Israel conflict is an extremely vexing issue and difficult space for anyone who enters, so most don’t.

I’ve lost count of the number of people who tell me, ‘oh yes but it’s been going on forever’ as a way of saying, ‘it’ll never change so there’s no point discussing the issue’.

In my opinion it’s critical, especially now, that we do talk and that’s what I want to do.

It’s a fair assumption the people I’m planning to talk with and what they may say on the issue will generate angst.

Not wanting to bring that backlash against others who are part of No Fibs, I’ve created the Palestine Project on jansant.com.
