Video: Teach-In, “Defending Palestinian Resistance” with Khaled Barakat and Charlotte Kates

The Bronx Anti War Coalition and Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network organized a teach-in on Palestinian resistance on Sunday, 4 February. This event dove into the reality of Palestinian life under Zionist occupation, the various forms of resistance employed, and the portrayal of their right to resist in mainstream Western media.

The discussion concluded with ways we can show solidarity and defend Palestinian resistance by any means necessary. By shedding light on the different armed resistance groups in Palestine and the regional resistance forces in Yemen, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Iran, the event focused on demystifying Arab resistance and arming participants with the knowledge required to foster global solidarity with the Palestinian liberation struggle. 

The event featured Samidoun’s international coordinator Charlotte Kates, speaking together with Khaled Barakat, Palestinian writer and member of the Executive Committee of the Masar Badil, the Palestinian Alternative Revolutionary Path Movement, with moderation by Saher Al Khamash and Marina Samuel.
