On Friday, 19 November, the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel hosted a webinar on “Comparative Criminalization: Repression and Resistance Across Borders.” Charlotte Kates, international coordinator of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, participated in the event alongside a range of activists, scholars and advocates confronting repression.
From the Israeli designation of Palestinian civil society organizations as “terrorist,” to San Francisco State University’s repression of Palestine in the classroom, to the repression student activists and faculty face on campus, the Palestinian liberation movement and Palestinian narratives face criminalization across borders. The discussion also looked at how we can fight back and seek collective liberation.
