Germany continues in its attempts to censor & repress Palestinians & Palestine solidarity whilst extending endless support for Israel & its apartheid practices. But these tactics will not stop people mobilising & speaking out, argues Hebh Jamal.

Dear Germany,

As a Palestinian journalist living here, I have witnessed the reprehensible efforts that you have made in an attempt to silence and sideline Palestinian voices. I am here to tell you it will fail.

In 2019, when your Bundestag resolution classified the BDS movement as inherently antisemitic, organisations and Palestinians that support the boycott were barred from accessing public funds and public spaces. Despite its unbinding status, universities, state governments, and public institutions have successfully denied Palestinians the right to freedom of speech.
