Librarians and Archivists with Palestine Launches New Website and Solidarity Network

In 2013, some good friends of ours went to Palestine to bear witness on the state’s libraries and archives after 66 years of  Israeli occupation. I was fortunate enough to attend their panel at the Radical Archives conference this past Spring and was haunted by their report. The presentation can be downloaded from Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/ctreports/radical-archives-archiving-palestine/s-0hyaB.

The committee has documented their experiences in several publications, but now all our invited to join their team. 

From the press release:

“…we are excited to launch a broad-based network in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for self-determination. Any self-defined information worker who agrees with our principles is invited to become a LAP member. Members can also join solidarity project working groups and contribute their skills to support access to information in and about Palestine.”

I just joined the network and so can you! Activist Archivists is looking forward to engaging directly with these ongoing efforts.
