Palestinians show solidarity with Kashmir at protest outside Indian Embassy in Washington DC

India recently revoked Article 370 of their constitution, a provision which gave the Jammu and Kashmir region special status as a self-governing territory.

Russian media solidarity for Golunov contrasts with loathsome US/UK press bootlicking over Assange

Solidarity with the Russian reporter, who was arrested on flimsy drugs charges, is welcome, but not from those trying to score geopolitical points while ignoring, or facilitating, attacks on journalism at home. Predictably, much of the US/UK media & political reaction to the arrest of Golunov has attempted to frame the episode as the Kremlin […]

Palestinians reject Madonna’s ‘fig-leaf gestures of solidarity’

Thanks for this article, Jonathan. I’ve been going cross- eyed reading the coverage of the ‘protests’ by Iceland’s band and Madonna aka Esther who did the opposite of what Palestinian civil society asked.
