I’ve been wanting to share some the articles, films and organisers that have taught me the most during these last months of Israel’s live-streamed scorched-earth assault on Gaza. Hoping some of these links might be helpful for people who are not on IG, who process slowly (like me), or anyone wanting longer-form content. This is a personal and deeply noncomprehensive list on the subject—just some things I keep coming back to.
