It will be available for free download but donations will be greatly appreciated and encouraged, because it’ll help fund AYO!, a youth group in San Francisco, and the funds will assist with their leadership development in the community! I worked closely with the youth leadership group during the artist residency at AROC, Arab Resource & Organizing Center that was collaborated with this incredible summer educational program at the School Of Unity & Liberation in Oakland, CA.

Call to action:
The US and UK governments continues to unconditionally support Israel’s crimes against humanity.
The time is now, more than ever, to end Israeli Apartheid. We are calling for a national and global movement to boycott and divest from Israel.
While the world watches in outrage, the US continues to support Israel’s crimes against humanity and give the carte blanch for Israelis to annihilate a whole population of Palestinians. We view the Obama administration as a partner in this war crime and we demand an end to our government’s active hand in funding these massacres, to the tune of 3.1 billion dollars a year of OUR tax payer dollars.
This is a double feature called “THE TREES WILL GROW AGAIN” speaking to the mass destruction colonialism currently has made for the people in Palestine & historically across Turtle Island aka North America. With the ongoing imperialist devastation that humanity is facing from systematic oppression at this moment of history. This feature builds solidarity with Palestine through cultural work. And as people of color, it speaks to building a cross cultural movement in joint struggle against these illnesses on earth, in relation to the destruction of the earth, people are rising, and the trees will grow again.
World famous DJ Dez is on the cuts delivering the phenomenal hook.
In the face of growing efforts to police our communities, we must forge alliances to challenge systems of repression and build power in our communities. Understanding prisons, borders, surveillance and policing as tools of global repression is critical to building and maintaining powerful movements for liberation. Gentrification in our streets is colonialism elsewhere. The War on Terror we are living through today is a new formulation of the War on Drugs, and the violence inflicted on our communities necessitates a unified stance against all forms of repression from the US to Brazil, to the Philippines and Palestine.
We ask our allies and partners to adopt these principles and take a stand against the policing and repression of our communities.
NO TO URBAN SHIELD
The tools, strategies, and tactics shared at Urban Shield will not only increase the opportunities for state violence in Oakland but across the globe in communities that show resilience and resistance in the face of oppression. Become a part of a growing resistance to increased police militarization and repression in Oakland and across the country demanding community self-determination to keep us all safe.
