International Working Womens Day

On International Working Womens Day, we return to the archives of the Black Panther Party newspaper from 1969-1970 to celebrate the legacy of anti-imperialist international solidarity between women waging revolution in oppressed nations around the world.

In the late 1960s, the BPP newspaper was one of the most reliable sources of information in the US to learn about the Palestinian liberation struggle, with the BPP regularly publishing articles and editorials from Palestinian political parties and interviews with Palestinian revolutionaries.

It was in this context that Black Panther Party members and Black people across the US learned about the role of Palestinian women in the struggle for national liberation against the zionist occupation, and that the seeds of Black-Palestinian solidarity continued to be planted.
