ABSTRACT

This quarter (May 16—August 15) was characterized by large-scale displays of solidarity on social media by organizers and activists in Gaza, Haifa, the West Bank, and Ireland. In this issue, the Great March of Return enters its 20th consecutive week of demonstrations, Palestinians in the West Bank cities of Nablus and Ramallah protest PA sanctions against Gaza and security cooperation with Israel, Palestinian activists show their gratitude to Ireland as a bill to outlaw settlement products moves one step closer to becoming law, and free speech advocates from around the world show their support for convicted Palestinian poet-activist Dareen Tatour. Trending hashtags this issue are #GreatReturnMarch #ThankYouIreland, #LifttheSanctions, and #FreeDareen.
