"...but if the bill is presented as pro-Israel, Democrats and Republicans vote in favor of it, and the vast majority of them, (...), didn’t even bother to read it fully and understand the constitutionality of it.”

It's Giving Tuesday, and if you have $5 to spare (and it's ok if you don't!) find an organization doing work you care about and send a few dollars their way. Here are the 3 organizations I was able to donate to today:
Jewish Voice for Peace
Transgender Law Center
National Indigenous Women's Resource Center

Today on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, we honor and celebrate the rich legacy of global solidarity with Palestine, past and present.
In 1977, on the 30th anniversary of the 1947 UN partition plan and in commemoration of the ongoing colonization and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people, the UN marked November 29th “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.” While UN resolution 194 (passed December 1948) guaranteed the right of return to all Palestinian refugees who were displaced during the Nakba, 73 years later we are still fighting for our right to return home.
As we reflect on all of the UN resolutions and broken promises to Palestinians on the international stage for generations, we also ground ourselves in the uncompromising support that we have received, and continue to receive, from oppressed and colonized people around the world.
This collage that we made last year features artwork by Palestinian painter Ismail Shammout, posters from the archives of the Organization of Solidarity with the Peoples of Africa, Asia and Latin America, Malcolm X’s 1964 meeting with the PLO, and signs that our Mexican, [Caribbean] and Filipino comrades have brought to our protests here in New York City.
While the zionist entity and their reactionary partners seek to normalize the ongoing annexation of Palestinian land and genocide of the Palestinian people, the masses of the world stand with Palestine, and will continue to struggle alongside us until we have achieved liberation within our lifetime.
- Within Our Lifetime, 29 Nov 2021

november 29th is the international day of solidarity with the palestinian people 🇵🇸
via @jewishvoiceforpeace on instagram. besides their page, Mohammed El-Kurd (he also gave a speech at the UN today) and eye.on.palestine are great sources to keep up with news in palestine, and decolonizepalestine.com has an absolutely wonderful reading list.

Please do your research! There is so much misinformation out there and a lot of lies.
Everyone should know the truth so please try to know as much as you can so you can spread awareness and help!

Who knew that hearing the word colonial from Mohammad el Kurd in his UN speech would make me so emotional. I know that his speech would probably change so little, if anything, but I seriously wanted to cry hearing the word from him in front of all these countries representatives. If nothing comes out of trying to save sheikh jarrah from ethnic cleansing, even if we lose the neighborhood, el Kurds still popularized the correct terminology to deal with the situation and make the world see it for what it is. It’s an occupation, it’s settlers violence against indigenous people of the land, and it’s ethnic cleansing.
The correct words matter, even if no one acknowledges them right now. They matter.

The infographic above (courtesy of Yalla! Let's Talk) was posted only six days ago and now Palestine is trending once again following Israel's new airstrike against the people of Gaza in the middle of the night.
Besides being a violation of the "ceasefire", which Palestinians themselves said would not resolve the core issue, this new wave of bombings is once again a reminder that a free Palestinian state cannot be achieved through lukewarm, inconsistent coverage and activism.
Here is a few resources, feel free to add more:
Build Palestine has provided a list of charitable organizations you can donate to, many of them are providing critical medical/ humanitarian aid to Gaza in particular.
The BDS Movement's Action Alerts, resource articles and images, and list of what to boycott and how to do it effectively.
A playlist of Abby Martin's Empire Files reports from Palestine
Working Class History's podcast on the history of Zionism, Settler Colonialism in Palestine, and Anti-Zionist Activism: Part 1 & Part 2
Article on how mainstream media and social media companies have targeted or marginalized support for the Palestinian cause

The murder of Palestinian children and ethnic cleansing of Palestinian communities is being supported by the US. Americans' taxes are funding these atrocities.
Please include Palestinians in your activism 🇵🇸❤️
Our hearts go out to Saeed Odeh's family, to the residents of Sheikh Jarrah & Silwan resisting ethnic cleansing, and to every Palestinian in exile waiting to return to their homeland 🇵🇸❤️🕊

For the last time :)
It is not a neutral “conflict”. Palestinians don’t have:
police officers littered around the streets fighting off attacking settlers
$3.8B funding from the US
homes (hello they’re being evicted and bombed?)
immediate access to medical care (settlers are blocking ambulances and throwing grenades)
citizen acknowledgement from the government that supposedly wants to help them
means of defending themselves
the right to properly mourn (a funeral was recently attacked by settlers)
Anyone who chooses to claim neutrality is choosing to claim the side of genocide. Neutral = complicit. The number of Palestinian deaths remains staggering and I promise, the occupying state’s numbers are nothing compared to it. Thousands more deaths and fatalities have occurred to the Palestinian people. When the death toll defers by roughly 9,000, I think it’s safe to say that the situation isn’t neutral.*
I repeat, if you are neutral, you side with genocide.
As a bonus:

just an fyi
israel has targeted communications and internet networks in gaza which effectively cuts off palestinians from the rest of the world
a significant drop in content across social media coming out of gaza in these last few days doesn’t mean the violence has stopped or that it’s over, it just means more voices are being silenced. it’s an active campaign by the israeli government to turn the world’s attention away. don’t let it fool you.
