And Also Too denounces the recent escalation of attacks on Gaza by the Israeli regime. As we stand in solidarity with Palestinieans resisting horrific oppression and ongoing ethnic cleansing, we call on our peers to recognize design, art, and culture as instruments of apartheid, settler colonialism, and state-sponsored dispossession.
