Hello! There is another strike this week, lasting until the 25th.

More or less the strike follows the same rules, but it's not organised by Bisan this time. It also isn't solely focused on Palestine this time, and aims to focus on every country experiencing genocide, colonialism and persecution. So Palestine, Hawaii, Ukraine, Congo, Sudan, Yemen, Armenia, Tigray, Haiti, Uyghuristan, Indonesia, West Papua -- and sadly, this is not an exhaustive list.

There is also an extra focus on actively doing stuff this strike - if you are able to, call your local MPs, attend strikes, etc. No one is free until everyone is free. 🍉

At the top of this website, you will find a quick "Escape!" button. This will take you to the homepage of BBC Weather. We've added this feature so that you can inconspicuously browse something else if you live in a non-accepting environment. We chose BBC Weather because it's more believable than a simple Google screen.
