Dear IJAN supporter:
this year comes to a close, we are in a profound moment of
destabilization as we face an acceleration of ongoing racism,
militarization, violence and repression and rise of fascist governments
and forces across the globe. In the United States, Black and Brown
people, Muslims, Palestinians, Syrians and other Arab activists and
communities, women, immigrants, queer and trans folks, people with
disabilities, poor people and many others have been targets of the white
supremacist government taking the reigns in the US. We also have an
opportunity to join together with so many others mobilizing in this
moment and to ensure that anti-Zionism is central to the struggles
against racism and for basic human rights and decency.
the election this year, we knew that with either candidate, US support
for Israel and partnership in domination in the region would have been
strong. Now, with president-elect Trump, this partnership goes beyond
political shared interests; he has personal and business relationships
with repressive regimes and corporate networks across the globe.
the resistance to Zionism in Palestine, to the movement for indigenous
land sovereignty in Standing Rock, to struggles for black liberation
internationally, Zionist institutions have played a role in attacks on
these movements for self-determination: we have also seen the power of
movements grounded in grassroots resistance to injustice.
are infuriated, but we are not surprised, by the continued alignment of
white supremacists and Zionists as we know their interests have always
been aligned. We understand, in this moment more than ever, the
importance of joint struggle against all forms of racism.
are organizing against the looming attacks on Muslim and Arab
communities activists and organizations. We are preparing to support
Black, Brown, Arab and queer organizers in their community self-defense
efforts. We are helping build strong movements that support
self-determination and local national and international campaigns
work is cut out for us. Our relationships to each other are critical.
Building organization, larger alliances, coalitions, and strong networks
is vital now more than ever.
