Generations of Protest

A Convergence Series

As the war on Gaza moved through its seventh month of unrelenting destruction, students around the world set up encampments and occupied buildings to press their institutions to cut financial and academic ties with Israel. Their peaceful and passionate protests brought a new level of intensity to the multi-sided movement supporting Palestine. They also recalled and built on a living history of similar student actions, from those demanding an end to the Vietnam War in the late 1960s on. This series began with a set of interviews by Convergence’s Stephanie Luce with people who have been engaged in different generations of campus protests. As it unfolded, other organizers wrote to offer their reflections.
