We’re holding off on much of our usual programming this week. Instead, we’d like to use our platform to share voices and perspectives of those involved in the struggle against the Israeli settler colonial rule in Palestine, and to invite our listeners to use this list of resources to deepen their understanding of the Palestinian struggle.
This is by no means a complete list. If you have suggestions that you think we should add, please reach out at email@example.com, or DM us on Instagram or Twitter.
