Dareen Tatour: An ode to Palestinian resistance

Dareen Tatour was largely unknown before her pre-dawn arrest on 11 October 2015. After posting a poem to YouTube a few days earlier, she now faces up to eight years in an Israeli prison on charges of incitement to violence. Over 300 renowned writers, poets, translators, editors, artists, and public intellectuals have since called for her release. On 23 June 2018, her sentence was yet again extended. She is set to receive a sentence on 31 July 2018.
