Settler Colonialism


While our meeting with Al-Qaws this evening prompted much critical engagement - with our two representatives sharing profundities what seemed like every few minutes as my hand cramped from the perpetual note-taking - the darkest idea, for me, proved to be the following:

Settler Colonialism creates false realities that, when are not lived, function to crush one internally. With such menacing tactics at play, there becomes clarity in the importance of this work.

We cannot stand by while the state exploits, oppresses, and displaces Palestinians; we cannot stand by as onlookers to the crushing of insides by Settler Colonialism.
