The organizers of Wednesday’s international women’s strike support the “decolonization of Palestine,” the platform published on their website reveals.
“Against the open white supremacists in the current government and the far right and anti-Semites they have given confidence to, we stand for an uncompromising anti-racist and anti-colonial feminism,” the platform says. “This means that movements such as Black Lives Matter, the struggle against police brutality and mass incarceration, the demand for open borders and for immigrant rights and for the decolonization of Palestine are for us the beating heart of this new feminist movement. We want to dismantle all walls, from prison walls to border walls, from Mexico to Palestine.”
As reported by The Algemeiner last month, a convicted Palestinian terrorist was among eight feminist activists urging American women to join the strike — which was described as a protest “against male violence and in defense of reproductive rights.”

More recently, Odeh has been in the headlines due to charges of immigration fraud filed against her and a subsequent ongoing court case.
