For so many, so far away, this place and these people are caricatures and characters in a story with terrible dialogue, but outstanding set design.
I spent much of the last month and more organizing to take part in work, learning and action in Susiya in occupied territory with an incredible group of partners from Palestine, Israel, North America and other places. Nearly 100 (mostly diaspora Jews) joined us. It was a lot of work and I am still thinking about how and what to express. We took part in an important thing with our partners in Susiya and we will continue to push on the system of injustice at work in this occupation, and we will continue to grow this movement, and we will continue to demand that our community(s) stand up with us against violence and oppression. We will continue expressing and continue telling.
