An ongoing online public program featuring texts, conversations, playlists, (art)works, manifestos and stories.

In this cultural world where terminologies and concepts are used to side-step/window-dress the everyday struggle, life and death of racialized and marginalized people worldwide, we want to not only speak out but underline that Palestinians deserve to breathe freely. Palestinian(s) children, fathers, mothers, friends, lovers, haters, queer people, elderly, youth, activists and everyday people deserve to live full lives in peace without daily oppression, trauma, horror and death. In simple words this means Free Gaza. Stop the Genocide! We amplify and support Palestinian people in their struggle for transformative justice and liberation.

All our lives are geopolitical.
All our struggles intersect.
