In spring and summer 2021 an extraordinary uprising swept across Palestine. Beginning in Jerusalem, Palestinians took to the streets to defend their homes, public spaces and places of worship under constant attack by the Israeli settler-colonial regime. The uprising soon spread to other Palestinian communities, culminating in a unifying General Strike on May 18 that was adhered to by Palestinians under occupation and in the refugee camps of exile.
