Palestinian Youth Movement

  • The Mapping Project

    What is the Mapping Project?
    Welcome to the Mapping Project. We are a multi-generational collective of activists and organizers on the land of the Massachusett, Pawtucket, Naumkeag, and other tribal nations (Boston, Cambridge, and surrounding areas) who wanted to develop a deeper understanding of local institutional support for the colonization of Palestine and harms that we see as linked, such as policing, US imperialism, and displacement/ethnic cleansing. Our work is grounded in the realization that oppressors share tactics and institutions – and that our liberation struggles are connected. We wanted to visualize these connections in order to see where our struggles intersect and to strategically grow our local organizing capacities.


    • Reject Repression: Support the Mapping Project — Palestinian Youth Movement

      We affirm our support for the Mapping Project out of Boston, and condemn attempts to censor this useful educational tool.

      The mischaracterization of the project by the ADL and other Zionist organizations is meant to distract from what the project exposes: the connections between policing, imperialism, and Zionist colonialism.

      The attempt by Zionist organizations to vilify and criminalize this project reflects their apprehensions over growing awareness of the links between domestic militarized policing, surveillance programs and support for Zionist colonization in Palestine. Indeed, the project identifies over 270 policing institutions, which reflect the vast majority of the project’s entries. It traces universities, weapons manufacturers, and Zionist organizations who collaborate with one another to further these very systems. It highlights the connection between gentrification, dispossession, and US imperialism. It critiques Zionist NGOs that fuel settlement expansion on Palestinian land.
