Teach-in on Palestine and the coloniality of the present

Publicado em: Teach-in on Palestine and the coloniality of the present

The Teach-in aims to provide comprehensive knowledge on the Palestinian cause alongside the history of Palestinian resistance against, and survival to, land disposession, apartheid, ethnic cleansing and genocide in the Israeli-occupied territories of Gaza, West Bank and East Jerusalem.

First, it introduces the wider public to the history of Gaza and the people who have come to call it home following the mass displacement of Palestians in 1948  (Nakba).

Second, it illustrates how the US’s military and industrial complex, alongside twenty and more years of ‘War on Terror’, paved the way to the current escalation of Israeli violence as well as the international community’s failure to halt the ongoing onslaught and persecution of civilians in Gaza and West Bank, respectively.

Third, it contextualises and examines how ‘counter-terrorism’ measures of have cleared the way for the current crackdown on pro-Palestinian protests and expression of solidarity in most Western countries. Last, it traces and contextualises Western states’ conflation of anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism while discussing the current global anti-Zionist Jewish movement for the liberation of Judaism from Zionism.
