Learning Palestine – Until Liberation II

Author: Dept of the Ongoing
Tags: #Parity Talks IV

Dear listeners, this is the second iteration of the 12 hour programme of Learning Palestine. As genocide unfolds before our eyes, language falls short, it becomes obsolete and helpless.
Yet we need to continue exploring ways of speaking out and organizing against the grain, against this overdose of destruction and annihilation of life, against warmongering and militarisation, against attempts to silence and immobilize us. And so we return to what has been said and spoken before us to comprehend the history that precedes and informs the current political moment. We return to the struggles that we belong to and find our roots in, from Algeria to Abya Yala, from South Africa to Asia and back to Palestine.
Despite the differences in our struggles, Palestine remains an embodiment and extension of these and other struggles for life and liberation, against racism, colonialism, imperialism and rising fascism. In this program we share lectures, talks, teach-ins as well as poems, music, and chants in the hopes of expanding our political horizons and engagements through study and struggle. To imagine ways of acting together, to tear apart the walls and borders that separate us, for a life in freedom, justice and dignity for all.
