“I will no longer be complicit in genocide.” An active-duty member of the US Air Force, Aaron Bushnell, set himself on fire outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC on Sunday in protest against the war on Gaza. In a video of the act, which Bushnell filmed himself and live-streamed on Twitch, the 25-year-old said he was going to “engage in an extreme act of protest but” but went on to say that his actions were minimal compared to the suffering of Palestinians. Bushnell poured a liquid over himself and ignited it while yelling “Free Palestine” repeatedly. Police officers rushed to douse the flames with fire extinguishers as Bushnell collapsed. He was transported to a local hospital and was last reported to be in critical condition.
