The December Issue Of JOHNSTONE Is Out Now
This month’s issue of JOHNSTONE is dedicated to the Palestinian poet, academic and activist Refaat Alareer who was recently assassinated by a surgical strike on 7 December 2023 as a part of the ongoing genocide and ethnic cleansing attempt being committed in Gaza. In the weeks before his death, he tweeted “If I must die, let it be a tale” with his now famous poem “If I Must Die”.
Refaat, here is our humble attempt to tell at least a part of that tale.
