N.Y. Teamsters Form ‘Sanctuary Union’ to Fight ICE Agents

Ginger Adams Otis New York Daily News
Across Long Island and throughout the city, some 120,000 Teamsters are getting prepped to become a “sanctuary union.” In 27 shops, business agents, supervisors and front-line workers are getting schooled on their rights under U.S. law — and when and how to challenge federal immigration agents who show up to search their work sites. In fundamental labor terms, it follows one simple rule: Union solidarity first, immigration status second.

Israeli Police Broke My Arm, But They Can’t Stop Me From Resisting — Or Speaking Out

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. Each and every day, Palestinians are subjected to arbitrary checkpoints which delay their travel, restricted water which strips them of basic dignity, home demolitions which tear families apart, and constant surveillance that has seeped into every aspect of Palestinian society. I am broken but not finished.
