‘All Oppressed Peoples Should Have Solidarity with Each Other.’

The Appeal, 12/6/23: “Since October 7, Israel has killed more than 15,000 Palestinians in Gaza, including more than 6,600 children.

Among the millions protesting Israel’s ongoing massacre—funded by U.S. tax dollars and with the blessing of President Biden—are those who seek to dismantle, reform, or abolish the American policing and prison systems.

‘The Abolitionist Law Center is dedicated to ending state violence in all of its forms, whether it’s in the United States or whether it’s in Palestine,’ Robert Holbrook, executive director of the Pennsylvania-based Abolitionist Law Center, told The Appeal. ‘When we see genocide being committed, that is in our DNA to speak up against it.’
