We can talk about the ways a medical lockdown differs from a military lockdown under occupation because there are significant differences. Most of us don’t have to go through military checkpoints or fear violence from soldiers to go to the supermarket. Most of us aren’t harassed & threatened in our own homes. But this medical lockdown is mighty stressful. That should make it easier for most of us to understand just how oppressive & violent the lockdowns of Kashmiris, Palestinians, & Uyghur really are. We need to build on that understanding to build the solidarity movements to oppose occupation & colonialism.
