In Our Power: U.S. Students Organize for Justice in Palestine by Nora Barrows-Friedman
In the years following Israel's 2008-9 "Operation Cast Lead" assault on the Palestinians of Gaza, a new kind of student movement emerged on U.S. campuses, in solidarity with Palestinians seeking to fully exercise their human and political rights within their historic homeland. These students have brought national attention to "BDS," the worldwide campaign in support of the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions of Israel until it abides by international law. Nora Barrows-Friedman, journalist and editor for the award-winning Electronic Intifada, traveled across the United States in 2013-14 interviewing the young organizers at core of this movement and documenting the rich political legacy these activists have built in the face of considerable opposition.
