The Students Resist

Reports from Student Activists fighting for Palestinian Liberation

Learnings from student activism for Palestinian Liberation through first hand accounts by student representatives at campuses around the world.

The panel will explore how students have risen up to answer Gaza's call and how their activism is shaping and being shaped by their local contexts. Universities have become front lines of capitalist, imperialist violence, as state sanctioned repression reaches heights last seen during the global 1968 student protests.

Student representatives speak on their movements' motivations, actions, successes, set backs and goals. By hearing diverse reports from around the world, we gather valuable lessons and form connections between our fights against university administrations, police forces and state propaganda in our shared struggle for Palestinian Freedom.
