In August 2022, Zionists incited a trial by media of Laith Marouf’s social media posts succeeding in the deletion of his private Twitter account and sparking the reactionary, Zionist, and Settler-Colonial government of so-called Canada to take action against him by defaming and defaulting on his employer, who had received a competitive grant from the Department of Heritage. This case of Zionist attacks in the media against Palestinian activists like Laith Marouf produced the need for the following statement & panel, and has resulted in some critical media coverage compiled below. There are also additional resources provided on anti-Palestinian racism in the media.
