Activism for All - AWAAM Documents Gaza Solidarity Actions in NYC and Urges Others to Follow Suit

Arab Women Active in the Arts and Media (AWAAM), NYC - In response to the recent swell of protests across new york city, which signal a deep, local base of solidarity with the Palestinian people, AWAAM: Arab Women in the Arts and Media has been interviewing people at the scene. The interviews document, through audio and video, the diverse lives and work of organizers and activists who have been taking to the streets in the thousands....

We encourage:

1. Your response to any of the points raised in the coming weeks.

2. Your collaboration in documenting what's happening in New York and generating discussions to engage activists and organizers. All it takes is a telephone to send audio to Utters.

Thank you and see you on the streets....
