Solidarity with Palestine

As a Xicana I understand how settler colonialism plays out in the lives of Indigenous peoples all over the world. So my political solidarity is built on a common experience of displacement and is accompanied by a commitment to stand by the Palestinian people. This piece honors the many kinds of resistance to Israeli occupation by the Palestinians.


Five panels show different scenes. In one, a person wearing a keffiyeh holds a slingshot into the air. In the second, we read: “Solidarity with the Palestinian People. Solidaridad con el Pueblo Palestino,” and the equivalent text written in Arabic. In the other panels, an older woman with a headscarf, or hijab, holds up a megaphone; children hold up large keys around a chain; and young women shout and stand together.
