PALESTINE WRITES PRESS
This space formerly contained the logo of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA), as they gave us a $10,000 grant to support the publication of an anthology called “As the Night for a Dream,” published by Palestine Writes Press. However, following pressure from various Zionist organizations, including the ADL and ZOA, which seems to have involved Governor Shapiro, the PCA insisted we remove their logo from our website. Today, following a hearing in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, Judge Ann Marie Coyle indicated that she understood why PCA would not want to be affiliated with us in the “current climate.” We’ve ordered the transcript and will update this note with the exact outrageous and racist quote. Of course, we are appealing this decision, but we’ve removed the logo in the meantime to comply with the order.
