NYC Pro-Palestinian Rally: Zionist Professors Should Be Banned From Colleges, Zionist Students Should Not Be In The Same Spaces As Palestinians; Zionism Is A Genocidal Threat To Us

On March 30, 2022, several pro-Palestinian organizations held a Land Day march in New York City. In video footage posted on DataInput on Twitter, protesters chanted "We don't want no two states, we want all of it," and "No justice, no peace." Fatima Mohammed of the CUNY Law Students for Justice in Palestine said that the same forces who are bombing people in Yemen and incarcerating black people in America are killing Palestinians. She urged the crowd to demand that "Zionist" professors be banned from college campuses and that "Zionist" students not be allowed in the same "spaces" as Palestinians. Mohammed also explained that this is because Zionism is a "genocidal threat to us." In addition, she said that the Ukraine crisis has taught Americans the meaning of occupation and genocide and the meaning of defending one's land "by any means necessary." However, Mohammed added, "we are the ones who can't defend our lands," and she said that in "this Islamophobic and genocidal country" people cannot rely on the media or government to find their will to fight.

Nerdeen Kiswani of Within Our Lifetime led the crowd in chants of "From the River to the Sea Palestine, will be free."
