Anti-Zionism

Los Angeles Times; Philip Weiss; Palestinian BDS Natl Comm
Truly free countries tolerate peaceful dissent. The 50-year occupation of the Palestinian territories seized during the Six-Day War has gone on for too long and must eventually be brought to an end.

Sarah Brammer-Shlay; and Ethan Buckner; Natasha Roth
Forward
What I’m experiencing in this moment is a small example of how the occupation is used to take away agency from the Palestinian people on a daily basis.
