»Gaza Youth's Manifesto for Change« je leta 2011 napisala skupina študentov, poimenovanih »Gaza Youth Breaks Out«, manifest je bil objavljen v britanskem časniku The Guardian. Leta 2013, je Borghesia uglasbila manifest in ga v obliki pesmi »194« leto kasneje izdala na studijskem albumu »And Men Created God«. Nova verzija skladbe, tokrat poimenovana »Gaza Youth Manifesto«, je vnovičen poskus opozarjanja na to, kar se danes dogaja v Gazi. Iz slabega na slabše.

Vokalni del skladbe »Gaza Youth Manifesto« sta izvedla Irena Tomažin in Dario Seraval. Aldo Ivančič je napisal glasbo ter poskrbel za aranžma, mix in produkcijo. Bas linijo na kitari je zaigral Nikola Sekulović, na električno kitaro pa Vitja Balžalorsky. Skupina Borghesia deluje, z nekaj letno pavzo, od leta 1981, ob tem pa je z glasbenim pečatom in performativnim nastopom pustila pečat na jugoslovanski pa tudi svetovni glasbeni sceni. Zasedba napoveduje tudi reizdajo remasteriziranega albuma »Ljubav je hladnija od smrti«, ki bo na začetku leta 2024 izšel v obliki vinila pri založbi Dallas Records.

Besedilo manifesta »Gaza Youth's Manifesto for Change«: Fuck Hamas. Fuck Israel. Fuck Fatah. Fuck UN. Fuck USA! Enough, enough is enough! 

We, the youth in Gaza, are so fed up with Israel, Hamas, the occupation, the violations of human rights and the indifference of the international community! "We want to scream and break this wall of silence, injustice  indifference like the Israeli F16s breaking the wall of sound; scream with all the power in our souls in order to release this immense frustration that consumes us because of this fucking situation we live in...

Fuck Hamas! Fuck Israel! Fuck Fatah! Fuck UN! Fuck USA! Enough, enough, enough!

"We are sick of being caught in this political struggle; sick of coal-dark nights with airplanes circling above our homes; sick of innocent farmers getting shot in the buffer zone because they are taking care of their lands; sick of bearded guys walking around with their guns abusing their power, beating up or incarcerating young people demonstrating for what they believe in; sick of the wall of shame that separates us from the rest of our country and keeps us imprisoned in a stamp-sized piece of land; sick of being portrayed as terrorists, home-made fanatics with explosives in our pockets and evil in our eyes; sick of the indifference we meet from the international community, the so-called experts in expressing concerns and drafting resolutions but cowards in enforcing anything they agree on; we are sick and tired of living a shitty life, being kept in jail by Israel, beaten up by Hamas and completely ignored by the rest of the world.

Fuck Hamas! Fuck Israel! Fuck Fatah! Fuck UN!  Fuck USA! Enough, enough, enough!

"There is a revolution growing inside of us, an immense dissatisfaction and frustration that will destroy us unless we find a way of canalising this energy into something that can challenge the status quo and give us some kind of hope. 

"ENOUGH! Enough of pain, enough tears, enough suffering, enough control, limitations, unjust justifications, terror, torture, excuses, bombings, sleepless nights, dead civilians, black memories, bleak future, heart-aching present, disturbed politics, fanatic politicians, religious bullshit, enough incarceration!

Fuck Hamas. Fuck Israel. Fuck Fatah. Fuck UN.  Fuck USA! Enough, enough, enough!

WE SAY STOP! This is not the future we want! We want to be free. We want to be able to live a normal life. We want peace. Is that too much to ask?"
