Palestine Unbound strives to capture the tenor and content of popular conversations related to the Palestinians and the Arab-Israeli conflict that have gone viral or represent a significant cultural moment or trend. In this issue, #HonorRasmea marks the end of Chicago community organizer, feminist, and torture survivor Rasmea Odeh’s four-year legal battle to defend herself from immigration charges; activists pursue a Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions campaign against the film Wonder Woman; Twitter users sharply criticize Israel’s Minister of Culture and Sport Miri Regev for wearing a gown plagiarized  from a Palestinian designer; and a social media campaign draws attention to the ongoing, ten-year Gaza blockade.
