Learn about Palestinian women and the resistance against settler-colonialism

Join us and East Bay DSA for a film screening of Naila and the Uprising on Sunday, March 6 at 2:00 p.m. This film is about a Palestinian woman activist named Naila Ayesh who resisted against the Israeli occupation during the First Intifada from 1987 to 1993. This is also in partnership with the National BDS and Palestine Solidarity Working Group. This film screening highlights the importance of Palestinian women coming together to share knowledge, mobilize their community, and more. This film is just over 1 hour long, and we will have a group discussion after watching the film. Register here to join us!

Reading Groups

Join Us to Discuss Walter Rodney’s Groundings with My Brothers

Join the Black Liberation and Indigenous Sovereignty chapter priority and the Education Committee for our first discussion on Walter Rodney’s Groundings with My Brothers on Saturday, February 26 at 3:00 p.m. on Zoom. In this classic work published in the heady days of anti-colonial revolution, Groundings with My Brothers follows the global circulation of emancipatory ideas, from the black students of North America to the Rasta counterculture of Jamaica and beyond. The book is striking in its ability to survey the wide and heterogeneous international context while remaining anchored in grassroots politics, as Rodney offers us first-hand accounts of mass movement organizing. Having inspired a generation of revolutionaries, this new edition will re-introduce the book to a new political landscape that it helped shape, with reflections from leading scholar-activists. You can find the direct link to the Zoom meeting here.

Ecosocialist Book Club: Kim Stanley Robinson’s The Ministry for the Future

The Ministry for the Future is a novel about the near future of climate change – the environmental cost, the human cost, and how we might work collectively for a different future.
