One very small way to support resistance in Palestine is by voicing our support loudly in our workplaces. I'll be adding this note in solidarity with the general strike to my email signature, and call on other @GSOCUAW workers to join me! #FreePalestine
Incredible show of solidarity by @GSOCUAW to condition their return to work on basic protections for those not even in their ranks, to secure a sanctuary campus. And now they're right back at it, fighting for the rights of Palestinians. https://t.co/niTUtAsQik
Workers of the world unite for a General STRIKE on Tuesday, May 18. We will continue to strike and organize for Palestinian freedom. GSOC just won our fight for a fair contract, but our fight to end exploitation and racism never stops!!! #PalestineStrike https://t.co/bIfy2iuyv3
