Palestine to Ferguson

“Solidarity does not mean our struggles are the same. Solidarity means all struggles matter.”

– Professor Robin D.G. Kelley at National Organizers’ Conference of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, September 21, 2014.

The murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri has shone a spotlight on racism, police brutality, and militarized policing in the United States. Resistance to Mike Brown’s killing has been met with violent repression in the form of rubber bullets, tanks, and tear gas. As thousands of people, most of them young and black, took to the streets of Ferguson to resist and demand justice for Mike, more joined in solidarity around the country and world.

Community leaders in Ferguson and St. Louis are calling on people of conscience to join them for a Weekend of Resistance October 10-13 to demand justice for Mike Brown and all victims of police violence; to stand together to challenge the systemic racism faced by black and brown communities in Ferguson, St. Louis, and across the nation; to keep the pressure on for broad, comprehensive change. Local groups including the Organization for Black Struggle and the St. Louis Palestine Solidarity Committee, joined by national groups like the US Campaign, are inviting those who support the Palestinian struggle for liberation to stand in solidarity with the people of Ferguson as part of a Palestine contingent in response to the call. We recognize that none of us is free until all of us are free.
