COVID Solidarity NYC, an organization i'm a part of, has released a statement on Palestine + Disabled solidarity. we've also published it on ANTIHEROINE.
COVID Solidarity NYC condemns the US-funded genocide being carried out in Palestine by the fascist white supremacist Zionist settler-colonial "state" of Israel. We reject the propaganda that insists that this situation is anything other than an indigenous group doing its best to resist and survive a generations-old effort to displace, dispossess, and extinguish them from their own land.
As disabled organizers, we cannot ignore how settler-colonial occupation violently disables people and leaves them to die (see the already impossible orders to evacuate; imagine those with limited mobility, or who’d die if unplugged).
However, we also want to use this moment to call your attention to the USAmerican public's complicity in genocide, in our inextricably linked struggle against extermination.
