Resisting the Purging of pro-Palestinian Faculty

Speaker: Danny Shaw

Join Zoom Meeting

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.

Danny Shaw holds a BA in Sociology and Latin American Studies from Colombia University and a master’s in international affairs with a specialization in South American and Caribbean Studies from Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs.

He is affiliated with the Midwestern Marx Institute and frequently appears on TeleSUR, RT, and other progressive media.  Danny is also a retired Golden Gloves boxer, fighting twice in Madison Square Garden for the NYC heavyweight championship. He is the author of six books and numerous articles.
