Palestine Solidarity Resources

I went to my first anti-war-in-Palestine demonstration in London in 2014. Before that, while living in Iran, I was mostly protesting the Iranian government's support of Hamas which I still do. Since 2014, I have, sadly, participated in many more demos of the same nature. I worked on a performance project, At Home in Gaza and London, directed by Julian Maynard Smith and Taghrid Choucair Vizoso with collaborators in Gaza (2016-18). I made several friends in Gaza through this project and through these long-distance friendships I learned about their daily lives – and the difficulty of the daily life, for example constant power cuts meaning no internet or meaning the humus in the fridge is gonna go off (so they prefer humus imported from Israel) or the lack of quality medical treatment. The cultural centre (Said Al-mashal) in which we/they performed was later specifically targeted and bombed by Israel. In 2021, while on residency at the United Nations, I focused on their archives around Palestine and the history of Zionism. As someone in the art and academia worlds of decolonisation, who teaches on creative engagements with archives and history, I have tried to learn more about the history of Palestine. Some resources I have read or watched in the years or come across through trusted sources are below. I haven't fully read every word of every source but to my understanding none of these sources are coming from an anti-semitic intention, they might well be anti-Israel state but not against the innocent people of any faith, nationality or belief.
