The Oakland Palestine Solidarity held two dynamic events and exhibits through our Off the Wall series. In partnership with AROC and NorCal Friends of Sabeel we celebrated struggle at Revolution is Love on Valentine’s day. We heard the powerful voices of Young Gifted & Black, Adhamh Roland, Chris Kazaleh, and Lubna Morrar. This celebration of resistance also included dancing at the mural with Al-Juthoor Dabke Dance Troupe, Abrazo Queer Tango and DJ Rumorosa. Click here to see photos.
Commemorating Palestinian Prisoner Day, Revisions: Black and Brown Resisting State Violence debuted during April’s First Friday. It featured the social movement work from over a dozen local organizations as well as photographs from Gazan artists. AROC, Eastside Arts Alliance, Critical Resistance and Art Forces came together to end this exhibition with a standing room only round table discussion. This collaboration highlighted connections among community struggles and cultures of resistance that challenge state violence, policing and prisons. Click here to see photos.
