This webinar was organized by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network on Sunday, 6 March, highlighting organizers challenging anti-Palestinian repression internationally.
In late February, French interior minister Gerald Darmanin announced his intention to dissolve, or ban, two collectives organizing for justice in Palestine in France, including the Collectif Palestine Vaincra, a member of the Samidoun Network. Palestinian writer Khaled Barakat was expelled from Germany for four years and subjected to a political ban for his work on Palestine, and his case goes to court on 11 March. In Britain, Palestine Action is campaigning to #ShutElbitDown and defending direct action for Palestine — after one Israeli arms factory has already shut down after ongoing pressure.
The webinar features speakers from Collectif Palestine Vaincra, the collective working tirelessly for Palestine and now challenging a dissolution order in France, Khaled Barakat on the attack on Palestinian rights in Germany, and from Palestine Action on the campaign to #ShutElbitDown and defend direct action for justice.
Speakers also discuss how we keep the focus on struggling for the liberation of Palestine and how these struggles highlight the role of imperialist powers in maintaining Zionist colonialism, occupation and apartheid throughout Palestine.
