“The Palestinian struggle for freedom and justice is intertwined with global justice struggles of other oppressed communities. The COVID-19 crisis demonstrates these intersections and provides an opportunity for global mobilisation in support of racial, Indigenous, social, economic, gender and climate justice” – Apoorva PG, South Asia Coordinator for the BDS National Committee

The catastrophic climate crisis is fueled by global inequality and engineered by complicit governments and corporations that put profit before people and planet. Everywhere, the least powerful are the most affected. Indigenous Palestinians living under Israeli occupation and apartheid, with no control over their land or natural resources, are highly vulnerable to the climate crisis.
