Look at Students for Justice in Palestine. 4) Mondoweiss which is a progressive media outlet that covers issues related to the fight against Israeli occupation, 2016 article a group of Italian students doing BDS organizing. It would be good to find out if there are students at nearby universities who you could talk to and link up with. Topic: 01:14:32 Letter from theeee Broke Great Hoe from Omaha, Nebraska!
