From the Bottom Up

“University of Michigan students walked out of a speech by an IDF soldier in a potent silent protest Wednesday. No news coverage: how many more unheralded actions unfold daily?” -Abby Zimet

When I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Saree Makdisi a few weeks ago, we discussed the need for grassroots efforts to actually bring about change for the Palestinians. The question posed by Ms. Zimet is a good one. What is important now is for the events to continue; for the protests to grow louder; for BDS to increase and spread, and for media coverage to be accurate and honest.

There can be no peace without justice; nor justice without truth.
