Join us for a panel discussing Spectre’s special issue on Palestine



Join us for a panel discussing Spectre’s special issue on Palestine

Israel’s genocidal war on Gaza has provoked an unprecedented outpouring of global solidarity with Palestine. The Palestinian struggle for liberation has become the epicenter of radicalization on campuses and in communities and workplaces around the world. Join us for this stellar panel to discuss Spectre Journal’s new special issue on Palestine and the politics of solidarity and resistance.
