In Solidarity with the Students

Following the arrests of hundreds of protesters at Columbia University, students have gathered on campuses across the country demanding that their schools stop doing business with Israel.

In solidarity with these students, we're offering free ebooks on Palestine, mass protests, and student rebellions. 

This is in addition to From The River to the Sea, the free ebook we published alongside Haymarket Books, which is also still available for free.
