The Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and Palestine Solidarity Legal Support (PSLS) are pleased to announce the publication of a Know Your Rights booklet for Palestinian rights activists, Legal and Tactical Guide: Palestinian Human Rights Advocacy in the U.S. The Guide is intended to help activists identify potential legal issues and how they might be approached, and to provide basic information about individual rights in a given situation. It includes sections on First Amendment rights and common ways that free speech rights are infringed, issues specific to campus activism, potential criminal charges arising from rights activism, and legal issues around boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns. PSLS, in partnership with CCR and in collaboration with the National Lawyers Guild and other organizations, has been responding to the increasing legal attacks and intimidation campaigns against Palestine solidarity activists around the US with direct representation and advocacy on behalf of activists, advocacy work on key policy issues, and legal education efforts. The Guide comes at the end of PSLS’s first year of work identifying and beginning to tackle the ways that Palestine solidarity activists are being repressed.
