In practical politics, not just ideally or romantically, solidarity with freedom struggles is not an act of noblesse oblige or some stinking pity thing. It is absolutely reciprocal. As war, occupation, persecution, genocide, & brutal exploitation expand & dominate the globe, none of us are getting out of this on our own. We’re in this together. A victory of the oppressed anywhere changes the balance of power to the advantage of the oppressed everywhere. Kids are at stake. All our lives are at stake. The future of humanity is at stake. We just have to learn forms of solidarity that are not episodic but as relentless as those of Palestinians, Kashmiris, Syrians, Rohingya, & others who refuse to bend the knee to violence & power.
