News Organizations & Commentary

 

Media has never been more consolidated; five media giants now control a staggering 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. With this illusion of choice, combined with the continuous broadcasting of misinformation, biased reporting and information suppression, many people are misinformed, or confused when it comes to understanding Occupied Palestine, and the Palestinian people. Many are left with the belief that it's simply too complicated. While there are over 70 years of events leading up until today, one truth remains: Colonialism, systemic racism, inequality and oppressive systems of apartheid are never complicated. They are wrong.
