Enduring Roots: Over a Century of Resistance to the Jewish National Fund” is a 40-minute documentary chronicling stories of al-Nakba survivors, interviews with their descendants the Right of Return for Palestinian refugees, and the current and growing resistance to the ongoing colonization of Palestine facilitated in large part by the Jewish National Fund.
Dozens of organizations signed on to this letter defending Angela Davis’ speech at UC Santa Cruz’s 2015 Martin Luther King Convocation against attack by the Amcha Initiative.
Excerpt: “We write specifically in support of the movements and individuals, like Angela Davis, who are exposing the role of the U.S. government and its partnership with Israeli state agencies and corporations to police. This partnership has expanded repressive policing, which criminalizes Black, Brown, immigrant, poor, queer and transgender communities.”

Researched, written, and edited by members of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, this pamphlet focuses on the role of Israel’s government, its military, and related corporations and organizations in a global industry of violence and repression. The states most involved with this industry profit from perpetual war and occupation across the globe while maintaining vastly unequal societies of their own.

Stop the Jewish National Fund is an international campaign aimed at ending the role of the Jewish National Fund (Keren Kayemet LeIsrael/JNF-KKL) in: the on-going displacement of indigenous Palestinians from their land, the theft of their property, the funding of historic and present day colonies, and the destruction of the natural environment.
Our movements need to be aware of the ways the State of Israel contributes to the violence and repression targeting us. IJAN works to expose Israel’s role in repression, not only of Palestinians, but through its military and homeland security exports, all over the world.
From “Unlearning Zionism” to “Israel’s Worldwide Role in Repression,” IJAN offers a range of workshops and educational materials. We are happy to present on our work and to facilitate trainings of trainers to make this information as widely available as possible. Please also check out our resources page for additional materials.
Beginning on the day that marks the New Year for Trees, Tuesday, February 3 is the Jewish holiday of Tu B’shvat, which honors the sacred miracle of trees. In many Jewish traditions, trees are celebrated as one of the most central symbols of life, and in Jewish law, there are strict prohibitions against destroying trees.
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, leaders of the religious Zionist movement began a custom of planting trees in Jewish colonies in Palestine as part of a celebration of Tu B’shvat. In 1901, this tradition was then adopted by the Jewish National Fund (JNF) for its “Plant a Tree in Israel” Campaign. Since then, the JNF has shamelessly exploited Tu B’shvat as an opportunity to raise international funds and support for its tree plantings, which function to greenwash Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine.
Never Again for Anyone challenges the misuse and exceptionalizing of the Nazi genocide of Jews (“The Holocaust”) for political purposes. The Zionist exploitation of this genocide to justify colonization, displacement and apartheid in Palestine is a dishonor to those who survived and those who did not. The refrain “Never Again” must mean “Never Again, for Anyone.”
