A Bibliography for Palestine Solidarity Encampments: A Resource for Student Rebellions

A Bibliography for Palestine Solidarity Encampments: A Resource for Student Rebellions

In solidarity with the Palestine Solidarity Encampments, punctum books presents a bibliography, culled from our catalogue as well as the catalogues of other presses, aimed at empowering student activists in their pursuit of justice and liberation. Rooted in the principles of divestment, disclosure, and repair, our open access books serve as a testament to our commitment to amplifying voices of resistance and solidarity.

The struggle for Palestinian liberation is intricately connected to broader movements for social justice, including student rebellions across the globe. As students, educators, and allies, it’s imperative we engage with critical discourse and knowledge production that challenges oppressive structures and advocates for meaningful change.
