Miranda Etel interview: Palestinian Prisoners Day

On April 17, Palestinian Prisoners Day, Struggle-La Lucha interviewed Miranda Etel, a young Jewish activist who organized a car caravan from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., to support Palestinian-led protests against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference this year. 

Etel is one of the founders of Youth Against War and Racism. She is currently helping the Peoples Power Assembly and Prisoners Solidarity Committee organize a car caravan protest in support of Maryland prisoners and ICE detainees.

According to Samidoun Palestinian Prisoners Solidarity Network, “Today, there are approximately 5,000 Palestinians jailed by Zionist colonialism, including over 180 children, 430 administrative detainees jailed without charge or trial, and 700 sick and ill prisoners, 200 with chronic and serious diseases that place them at even greater risk should Covid-19 spread throughout the prisons.”
