Palestine 101

The Palestinian Occupation can seem massively complex at first glance, so we've compiled a list of "Palestine 101" resources to help you understand why we're so passionate about Palestine solidarity work.
This youtube video and accompanying Q&A section gives a brief overview of the history of the conflict and current human rights violations occurring in Occupied Palestine. 

Breaking the Silence is an Israeli organization composed of former Israeli Defense soldiers (IDF). This website posts stories of what these soldiers have seen and done in Palestine. 

Mondoweiss is a prolific blog and news source that focuses on the Middle East and specifically the Israeli Occupation.

The Badil Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights provides a lot of great historical and statistical information on the conflict. 

These links take you to our favorite news sources, Al-Jazeera and Ma'an News Agency, for the latest on what is happening in Israel/Palestine.
