Green Sunday (7/14): Putting the “solid” into solidarity: Beyond Zionism and the Steal of the Century
How does zionism, settler-colonialism, apartheid and military occupation shape the respective conditions of the Palestinian people today and over the past 70 years? Activists are caught between the immediate urgency to address daily injustices and longer term visions for a Palestinian state. What we need is to sustain both the short term resistance, and build the longer term vision. At this precarious moment, with Trump’s Steal of the Century looming, it’s time to put the “solid” into solidarity through pragmatic demands such as BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) and one-state/one person/one vote.

Noura Khouri has worked for nearly the past two decades as a human rights activist, campaign strategist and community organizer. She has lived in Palestine, where she gained invaluable campaign and human rights experience, and in Egypt, where she went to witness the revolution. Prior to that she led the Middle East Peace Program for the American Friends Service Committee, as well as many successful field campaigns for other organizations, including: the War Resister’s League/Stop Urban Shield Campaign, Green Party of Alameda County, Peace Action West, International Solidarity Movement and Badil Resource and Refugee Rights Center, and more. She now is an Organizer with Faith Alliance for a Moral Economy (FAME) — where she is excited to be working within the intersections of faith, labor and community — to build bridges and destroy walls.
