Anti Israel protest in US universities talk by Professor Immanuel Ness

The ongoing genocidal war in Gaza which the Zionist Israel has launched after 7 October last year has killed more than 36 thousand Palestinian including children, women and elderly besides reducing Gaza to rubble. But this unprecedented Israeli offensive has not deterred the Palestinian people as they continue to resist. The justice-loving people all over the world have been expressing their solidarity to the heroic Palestinian resistance and are call for boycotting Israel and divesting from companies benefitting from the occupation has gained renewed support. The most heartening aspect of this global solidarity was that the students and professors of about 150 college campuses took part in anti-Israel and pro-Palestine protests. The state repression on these protest demonstrations only led to spreading of the protests in the US, Europe and different parts of the world. This is very important moment in the global solidarity movement for the Palestinian people. In order to understand the reasons behind this enormous support for Palestine in US campuses and its implications, we have invited Professor Immanuel Ness who teaches political Science at City University of New York and who took part in the anti-Israel protest in his campus.
