Solidarity Under Siege: Palestine and the Criminalization of Protest
Join Ibrahim Husseini, Majed Abusalama, Aviah Sarah Day and Shanice Octavia McBean for an urgent conversation on resistance, repression, and global solidarity.
With the unprecedented mobilization of millions across the world in support of the Palestinian struggle for liberation, Israel and its allies have been swift in their response. From Germany to the UK to Palestine, we have seen the criminalization of slogans, chants and signs, and brutal violence from police, settlers, Zionists and the far-right. The determination to crush the widespread solidarity with the Palestinian cause is abundantly clear. As the genocide continues, our enduring solidarity in the face of such repression is more important then ever.
