workers organizing & building unions, whether in large corporations or small NGOs, are absolutely incredible and inspiring. No work place is too small, too big, too powerful, too left, too anything, to unionize.

1/2 The Supreme Court of Israel just held that IDF forces can search Palestinian homes in the West Bank with no warrant, although homes of Israeli settlers are protected by due process. Why? Inter alia b/c different legal regimes apply to both populations. Call it what you will.

BREAKING: JNF voted to claim 1000s of dunams of Palestinian land. They're again using racist laws designed to steal Palestinian property. The move will potentially create 1000s of #SheikhJarrah type displacements. We'll continue to fight them, and win. #AbolishJNF #SaveSilwan

Essential to understand is how a depoliticized conception of antisemitism as "hatred" enables this kind of nonsensical word soup. twitter.com/AJCGlobal/stat…

Nazis carrying tiki torches chanting “they will not replace us” and “blood and soil” are not the same as placards denouncing Zionism and saying so is harmful to Jews and the fight against antisemitism. twitter.com/AJCGlobal/stat…

In Palestine: A 26 year old mother is fighting for the right to give birth without being shackled in a jail cell. 162 parents are fighting for the right to bury their children whose bodies are held hostage by the Israeli military. In birth & after death we are in chains. 1/2

Last night, Palestinian Raed Yousef Jadallah, a father of four, was on his way home from work when Israeli soldiers fired live ammunition at him. They shot him from a distance then left him to bleed to death, preventing any help from reaching him.

The U.S. loves to harp on how the Middle East hates women while passing misogynistic and hateful abortion bans.
Retweeted by JVP #SaveSheikhJarrah #SaveSilwan
We demand Anhar's release and we will keep fighting until all women can live free of the cruelty of state actors demanding what they can and can't do with their bodies.
Reproductive rights is on our mind today in the United States where abortion rights are being stripped away by the Supreme Court. At home and abroad, we see the ways control of women's bodies is a tool of psychological torture used by the state to oppress vulnerable communities.
"How will I go through labor shackled?" This is what Anhar al-Deek asked her family in a letter. Giving birth is a moment in which you should be closest to those you love, to recover and rejoice. Anhar is about to have her baby in handcuffs in an Israeli prison. #SaveAnhar twitter.com/MiddleEastEye/…

Israeli soldiers raided a Palestinians girls school in Jerusalem today, arrested the principal, summoned teachers for investigation, and seized school computers and files. Even Palestinian education is not spared from the violence of Israeli apartheid.

In Judaism, to kill one person is to destroy an entire world. The Israeli military has destroyed 82 worlds this year — without consequences and with US taxpayer funding. Protect Palestinian children and the worlds their lives encompass. End US funding to the Israeli military.
These 82 Palestinian worlds — each containing its own love, beauty, and meaning — never got to develop the way they were meant to. They were marred with daily oppression during their whole existence, and prematurely ended by that same oppression. May they rest in peace and power.
More and more unions are taking up the cause of BDS and Palestine solidarity from teachers unions to the ILWU Longshoremen's Union. If you are a member of a union or labor group and are interested in pushing your union towards supporting BDS, reach out!
The U.S. labor movement is responding to a call from Palestinian workers. The labor movement has always emphasized internationalism so it feels right that the latest wave of Palestinian solidarity resistance would be driven by labor organizers and unions. 972mag.com/labor-unions-b…
Mai Afaneh, 29 years old, was shot and killed by occupation forces on June 16th while driving north of Al-Quds. The occupation refuses to return her body to her family. #ReturnOurChildren #HonorOurMartyrs

It is time for Jewish institutions to stop putting on these sorts of events, which inherently reinforce a false analysis of antisemitism: that the political right and left pose an equal threat to Jewish safety. This analysis is more than just wrong — it puts Jews in danger.

But in both places Palestinians remain steadfast in their liberation struggle. The Israeli and US governments’ defensive reaction to their resistance is a testament to the its power and the threat it poses to settler-colonialism in Palestine, the US, and around the world.
In fact, FBI programs like “Countering Violent Extremism” that surveil and criminalize Palestinian activism are part of the legacy of COINTELPRO, the counterintelligence project responsible for assassinating Hampton in 1969.
In Palestine, the Israeli government tries to demoralize Palestinians and suppress their resistance through daily oppression and by detaining, torturing, and killing activists. In the US, the government subjects Palestinian activists to surveillance and criminalization.
Thinking about Fred Hampton’s insight — that you can jail, persecute, and murder liberators, but you can’t jail, persecute, and murder liberation — and how it applies to the Palestinian freedom movement today on his birthday. May he and all murdered liberators rest in power.
Anhar al Deek, a Palestinian woman who is now 9 months pregnant and who might be forced to give birth in prison where she is being held without even a charge, is in prison in the first place because a bunch of settlers attacked her and the army’s response was to arrest her

Here is a clip Ed Asner speaking to Democracy Now in 2002 on his support of the “Not In Our Name” pledge which opposed the invasion of Iraq and his lifetime of activism. democracynow.org/2002/10/3/seve…
Throughout his career he supported unionism, opposed military intervention in El Salvador and Iraq and was an early support and advisory board member of JVP. He lived into his values throughout his entire life and career and we're honored to include him among our fore bearers.
Today, we are honoring Ed Asner who died yesterday at age 91. In addition to being a beloved actor who brought characters to life in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "Up," Asner was a political leader and activist. nytimes.com/2021/08/29/art…

Israel forced young Palestinian Ali Burqan to demolish his own home in Jerusalem. While he was self-demolishing his home, a wall fell on him, killing him.

Today, we are remembering Naji Al-Ali who died on this day in 1987. He was a caricaturist, activist, and artist who created images (including the icon Handala) that resonated with Palestinians fighting for their freedom and against Israel's colonial project. twitter.com/WeAreNotNumber…
Today, 29 August, on the 34th anniversary of #NajiAlAli’s death, we honor his life as a Palestinian caricaturist, artist and advocate. Naji sought refuge in 1948 with his family in Ain Al Hilweh refugee camp in Lebanon. He published his caricatures in local & Arab publications.

No more inaction. Biden must say to Bennett, loud and clear: if Israel does not comply with international law and respect Palestinian rights, the U.S. will cut all funding. No more $4 billion a year for war crimes.

Banat’s assassination is a symptom of the PA’s US military trainings & Israeli-led “security coordination.” Which explain why PA forces are nowhere to be found when settlers set a West Bank home on fire & how the IOF can kill Palestinians regardless of geography 3/

The protests sparked by Nizar Banat’s assassination are not just against the PA’s authoritarianism. We are protesting the disease of which “authoritarian” is merely a symptom: US and Israeli interventions—even inventions—that “rebuilt” PA security forces to be behave this way 2/

Great to see progressives in Congress slam the Palestinian Authority for its violent suppression of Palestinian protestors. I would like them to say why we are protesting, to articulate that the PA is an agent of the Israeli occupation & an extension of US foreign policy. 1/
