Videos From Tom Vee
On July 20th 2014 an estimated 6,000 Bay Area residents mainly from the Palestinian and Arab communities hit the streets against the ongoing atrocities being committed by the Zionist entity against the people of Palestine. As of this writing over 560 Palestinians have been murdered. The resistance has killed an approx. 25 Israeli Occupation Forces. InshAllah that number will continue to rise.
July 20th is also the birth date of Frantz Fanon, psychologist and leading intellectual/theorist on Decolonization. The following video shows

Eastern and Ethnic Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, talking about the deep rooted connection between todays struggle against Zionism and colonialism to that of our ancestors who fought decolonial struggles before us:
