In solidarity with the ongoing struggle for Palestinian Liberation, this exhibition presents a selection of artworks, political posters and documents from EastSide’s Community Archival Resource Project (CARP) that speak to the revolutionary spirit for liberation. 

 

Free the Land! By Any Means Necessary! shares a historic perspective on local and global movements for self-respect, self-defense and self-determination. From liberation movements abroad in South Africa, Angola, Hawaii, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, to liberation movements at home, from the Black Panther Party, the Chicano Movement, American Indian Movement, to the Young Lords and I Wor Kuen, the materials in this exhibition share how the ongoing struggle for the liberation of Palestine is a shared struggle against imperialism, colonialism and white supremacy.  

 

When land is stolen and liberty and self-determination is denied to the people, the words of Malcom X ring loud, “ ...We want freedom by any means necessary. We want justice by any means necessary. We want equality by any means necessary.”

  • Malcolm X, 28 June 1964, Speech at the founding rally of the Organization of Afro-American Unity.
