With BDS victories on the rise, I spoke to @AROCBayArea organizers behind the #BlockTheBoat movement that prevented an Israeli cargo ship from docking in Oakland about what winning looks like https://soundcloud.com/empire-files/blocktheboat

Just no. This colonial court never represented a fair arbitration. The proceedings which denied translation from Hebrew & then asked #Palestinians to pay rent to Zionist settlers for “forseeable future” (arbitrary time in legalese) proved it. #SheikhJarrah https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-58024060

Just as our siblings in #SouthAfrica have consistently risen up in solidarity with #Palestine and all struggles of oppressed people globally, we join in calling for #internationalsolidarity with the current struggles of the South African people. https://blocktheboat.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/Intl-Solidarity-with-the-People-of-South-Africa-July-31-2021-.pdf

"Knowledge is highly regulated. In order to maintain an inequitable society like ours, an American capitalist system where 5 people have the same amount of wealth as 3.5billion people on the planet, they have to ban anti-racist teaching. That's what's at stake"-Jesse Hagopian

"The story begins and ends with solidarity, thats what birthed Eths and thats what this campaign to defend Eths is built on...The solidarity we built will outlast any policy, & will shape whats possible for the future of our communities"-AROC Director, Lara Kiswani #FMFP2021
