No, we should not “accept” mass Covid deaths [Hebrew]

In an opinion piece for Local Call I criticize calls by Israeli Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked to “accept” a modicum of death and severe infection during the pandemic. I point to the cruel politics behind the apparent banality that “there is a global pandemic, and in pandemics people die” – urging the public to accept a politics of pandemic management that makes no pretension of trying to end the pandemic.

Abolition and the Caring Economy [Hebrew]

In this piece for Local Call, I draw attention to the deep positive agenda attached to the rising calls for police and prison abolition – and draw a connection between this agenda and what Naomi Klein has called “growing the caring economy”. I argue that not only does abolition offer a fundamental, revolutionary shift in societal priorities – as relevant in Israel as in the US or any comparable state – but that this shift is essential if we are to meet the challenges of climate change with humanity and not brutality.
