"Peace Be Upon Our Martyrs Whose Souls Will One Day Soar Over A Liberated Jerusalem, Free From The Defilement Of Their Killers"

Speaker 1: "Peace be upon the Palestinian people, whose sheer existence is resistance. Peace be upon our Palestinian resistance who have taught us to fight for what is rightfully ours. Peace be upon our martyrs whose souls will one day soar over a liberated Jerusalem, free from the defilement of their killers.

"We are now 13 or 14 days into our encampment here in Berkeley, and we are not here for fun and games. We are here to tell them that as long as you continue this annihilation of our people, we will continue to punch your power in its eye, we will continue to be a headache, we will continue to be a thorn in your neck like our resistance is, and we will continue to fight for our people as our resistance has taught us."

"Israel Has Failed To Destroy The Palestinian Right To Resist... We See That With The Student Intifada, Spread Across 150 Universities Across The World"

Speaker 2: "Israel has failed to destroy the Palestinian right to resist. They have failed to destroy support for Palestine and Palestinian resistance. They will fail to extinguish the will to struggle, from Gaza to across the world. We see that with the student intifada, spread across 150 universities across the world..."

"Glory To The Martyrs! Glory To Our Noble Resistance!"

Speaker 3: "Glory to the martyrs! Glory to the martyrs! Glory to our noble resistance! Glory to our noble resistance! And glory to the people! And glory to the people! Long live the Palestinian people and long live the Palestinian resistance! Long live the Palestinian people and long live the Palestinian resistance!"
