After ice, rice and hot water, now the Rubble Bucket Challenge is being taken up to spread awareness about the war on Gaza
It started with the Ice Bucket Challenge. Soon after, the Rice Bucket Challenge by a Hyderabad journalist gained popularity and then Hot Water Bucket Challenge (on the lighter side to show resentment to your dear ones) and the latest is the Rubble Bucket Challenge.
The idea is simple: raise awareness for the political situation in Gaza by replacing ice and water with debris from bombed-out buildings. The Rubble Bucket Challenge was launched in support of people in Gaza suffering from Israeli air strikes. The campaign, which is an imitation of the Ice Bucket Challenge, sees people pour buckets of sand and rocks over their head and nominate others to do the same. The concept is intended as "a campaign to raise awareness about the war on Gaza where people are bombed inside their homes", according to its Facebook page.
A Gaza-based journalist Ayman Aloul, who took part in the challenge, posted a YouTube video in which he appears to be standing amid the ruins of Gaza buildings destroyed by air strikes. “We looked for a bucket of water, however, the use of water is more important than to go over our heads," Aloul says in his video. "This challenge is for all people who sympathise with the Palestinian people. We ask for solidarity from those who have followers and audience.”
