Dozens of indie booksellers, from stores across America, have signed an open letter in support of Palestine. Signatories from some of this countrys best bookstoresin Seattle, Oakland, Chicagohave lent their names to a letter that says, in part:

As workers in America, our money is filtered into the weapons of war that are being used against schools, refugee camps, hospitals, and civilians. The same weapons of war with names stolen from the language of Indigenous people, used against another Indigenous population. We acknowledge our inheritance of a legacy of Indigenous colonization, and accept our responsibility to work towards decolonization. The advocacy for the safety of Palestinians and their land is part of that responsibility.

Head here to read the full letter, and/or add your name in support.
