Read analysis in the Journal of Palestine Studies by Adalah Justice Project's Sandra Tamari and Nadia Ben-Youssef on Israel's Nation State Law and the organizing opportunities it presents in the United States. (Vol. 48 No. 1, Autumn 2018; (pp. 73-87))
From Turtle Island to Palestine
Adalah Justice Project works closely with The Red Nation, an organization of Native and non-Native activists, working for Native liberation. In August 2018, Adalah Justice Project and Al-Haq offered a workshop at the Red Nation Annual Liberation Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico drawing parallels between land, belonging and citizenship from Israel to the United States.
AJP at Netroots Nation: Progressives for Palestine Demand Political Coherence of the Left
The crowd erupted with cheers when a member of the #BlackAssCaucus claimed space in the Netroots Nation closing ceremony to offer a clear roadmap to the progressive community:
“If you’re not progressive on Palestine, you’re not progressive. If you’re not progressive on queer rights, you’re not progressive. If you’re not progressive on Black lives, you’re not progressive.”
The brave disruption by Black organizers, a now-regular occurrence at the annual political convention for self-identified progressives, distilled a critical reckoning of the left. The moment also allowed the audience to reflect just how far the tide has turned on Palestinian rights.
