Richard Falk praises Noura Erakat’s new book ‘Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine’: “What Erakat seeks and achieves is less about the emancipatory interpretation of legal norms and more about allowing us to grasp the manipulative nexus that underlies international legal discourse, and shapes political patterns of control and resistance.”
Palestinian artists from the Washington D.C. metro area and beyond convened at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts on Monday, October 2nd for opening night of the seventh annual D.C. Palestinian Film and Arts Festival. Festival co-founder Noura Erakat tells Mondoweiss, “When we discuss Palestine, we’re discussing a lot of the pain and intensity. There are so few places to celebrate what it is to be Palestinian and what it is to be Palestinian in our global diaspora as we exist. [This festival and its artists] are the iterations of being Palestinian-American.”
