Resisting the Purging of pro-Palestinian Faculty
Speaker: Danny Shaw
Our speaker, Danny Shaw, is among the many voices for Palestine who have been
punished for speaking out against genocide. After 18 years of teaching in the Latin
American and Latinx Studies Department at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, he
was fired last month for his social media posts educating and organizing against the
Israeli-U.S. genocide in Gaza. He has been camped out with the hundreds of students,
faculty, alumni and staff that make up the Columbia Gaza Solidarity Encampment.
We urge you to sign the petition in support of Danny Shaw, who has spoken at the
Marxist Library a number of times. The popular faculty was fired in retaliation for his
outspoken public stand for Palestinian liberation. The petition can be found at:
The witch-hunt was led by the Zionist doxxing and blacklisting operation Canary
Mission. Despite receiving numerous death threats, Danny continues to teach as a
volunteer at the Columbia University’s pro-Palestine encampment.
