1. Today at 5pm, I was meant to give a lecture, for which I was invited since February, at @mumok_vienna and @akbild for the 'decolonial feminist' programme launched by Verein K.

But, four days ago, I have been CANCELLED under the pressure of pro-Zionist groups in Vienna.
2. So far, all I have been told that the abstract I submitted a long while ago, and was approved by the same institutions...is 'offensive' and contains 'transgression of discursive boundaries'.

That is, calling #Zionism a #SettlerColonial state is not acceptable in Vienna!!
3. Is this #academia anymore?

I call on all free academics of the world to come forward in condemnation of my cancellation and censorship. This is about the present and future of any critical academic scholarship vis-a-vis the state of Israel.

In light of Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in #SheikhJarrah and the #Naqab happening right now, I thought it useful to draw on @PalStudies archive for some historical context. #Thread
In 1985, Palestinian jurist Hanna Dib Nakkara, published an article titled, "Israeli Land Seizure Under Various Defense and Emergency Regulations" detailing Israeli theft of Palestinian land in th language of law. tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.230… #Apartheid #SettlerColonialism
While Zionists frame Britain’s Defense Emergency Regulations (1945) as technology to crush Zionist opposition to British rule, Nakkara shows that they were originally enacted as orders in council against Palestinian Arabs. #EthnicCleansing #SheikhJarrah #Naqab
