The ongoing genocide in Gaza is not being perpetrated by the Zionist regime alone but with the full involvement and complicity of the United States and its partners, including Germany, Canada, the UK and France. At the same time, however, it has also strikingly illustrated the rise in the regional resistance, from the sharpening battle on the borders between Lebanon and occupied Palestine and the role of the Yemeni people, government and armed forces (and the AnsarAllah movement) in defending the Red Sea against complicity with genocide. We will discuss the role of Palestine and the rise of the regional resistance — and the challenge this poses to imperialism more broadly.
