Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network is an international network of activists building solidarity with Palestinian prisoners.

Today, 23 September, a series of major Silicon Valley corporations – Zoom, Facebook and YouTube (Google) – joined hands with racist, right-wing, Zionist campaigns in an attempt to silence an academic event, “Whose Narratives? Gender, Justice, & Resistance: A conversation with Leila Khaled,” organized by Prof. Rabab Abdulhadi and Prof. Tomomi Kinukawa at San Francisco State University. The event featured Palestinian resistance icon Leila Khaled along with Rula Abu Dahou, Ronnie Kasrils, Sekou Odinga and Laura Whitehorn, all former political prisoners.

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network joined numerous social justice and Palestine support organizations in endorsing and co-sponsoring the event, organized by AMED Studies at SFSU and supported by the students of GUPS. The silencing campaign by Zionist, racist and right-wing forces is part and parcel of an attempt to block any and all communication by a distinguished, widely esteemed symbol of Palestinian resistance.

Despite the attacks by some of the biggest global corporations, the full event was recorded by the organizers and will be made available to all in the coming period. Palestinian women and Palestinian resistance will not be suppressed!

We will be sharing actions and alerts in the coming days to hold accountable all of those responsible for these attacks.
