Worst part of this is all these celebrated authors sitting silently. As silent as they presumably have been during this whole genocide.
The people who disrupted this event were detained by police for hours. Power and respect to them, may disruptions multiply. Free Palestine. https://t.co/022Tv5BxAE

We’re still going strong! We refuse to stand by and allow weapons manufacturers and banks to continue to arm and make a fortune off of the carnage in Gaza, the massacre of thousands, and the occupation of Palestine. #ShutItDown4Palestine #ShutDownElbit https://t.co/8IrSIDgztg pic.twitter.com/oMstxKXlv7
