Palestine Writes responds to racist attacks – Mondoweiss
The Palestine Writes organizing committee responds to escalating racist attacks on the literature festival.
“Palestine Writes is a small moment for us to exist with agency in the fullness of our brilliance, ancient heritage, stories, music, dance, and other art forms. This also includes our defiance against our colonizers and those who collude to destroy and erase our principally defenseless indigenous and exiled society. This is wholly correct, justified, and moral; and we make no apology for it.”
Palestine Writes organizing committee letter to the University of Pennsylvania, September 2, 2023.
In response to escalating attacks on the upcoming Palestine Writes Literature Festival by Israel lobby organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League and the Jewish Federation, as well as from some elected officials, the Palestine Writes organizing committee released the following letter it wrote to the University of Pennsylvania in early September.
