Salma's story highlights the solidarity of indigenous people to the Palestinian cause. Salma challenges us to think about whether or not we stand with other causes and groups yearning for freedom and peace around the world, including here in the United States. Now more than ever our attention is called to many different movements on social media, and it's important to remember as Palestinians that we are called to freedom movements and to support movements like ours.
Which movements are you called to support? Which do you feel obligated to? Perhaps at the start of this new year, we can do an inventory of all the movements we support. We are inspired by Salma's example and the example of all indigenous people who continue to fight for freedom and justice everywhere.
