These tangled knots of oppression, once made visible, together weave a new fabric of liberation... Today's activist discussions, as well as current social theory, have identified "intersectionality" as the most fruitful way of understanding the threads of connection.' - Why Palestine Matters, The Struggle To End Colonialism
"Employing an intersectional lens invites us to focus on creating effective alliances based on an understanding of our historical legacies of racism, patriarchy, and colonial expropriation." - Why Palestine Matters, The Struggle To End Colonialism
THE RIGHT OF RETURN In International Law (Information provided by Institute for Middle East Understanding):
"All refugees have a right to return to areas from which they have fled or were forced, to receive compensation for damages, and to either regain their properties or receive compensation and support for voluntary resettlement. This right derives from a number of legal sources, including customary international law, international humanitarian law governing rights of civilians during war, and human rights law. The United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights states in Article 13(2) that "[e]veryone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and return to his own country." This is an individual right and cannot be unilaterally abrogated by third parties."
