“We, the People, March with Linda”

Published

Linda Sarsour is one of four national co-chairs of the Women’s March which drew millions of women around the world. Her efforts were instrumental in the success of the largest protest in American history. Now she is being viciously attacked by right wing trolls and white supremacists because she is unapologetically Muslim, as are so many of us are. She has devoted her life to fighting for every marginalized community in the country and now it is time for us to stand up for her. A petition was set up to support a truly heroic woman. Sign Here
#IMarchWithLinda

A world of shuyukh, activists and the people have stood up to defend her

This is not harmless trolling- propaganda like this has helped put innocent people in prison.
If they come after her they are coming for all of us. Bottom line- if you are Muslim you defend one of ours against anti Muslim bigots. If you are not a Muslim- defend Muslims from Islamophobic attacks. If you are white, defend people of color against Neo-nazis.- Hena Zuberi

But most importantly:

#IMarchWithLinda because she is my sister in Islam and despite all of our individual stories this Islamophobic system is bigger than you and I. Because this is not new. This day has proven what we already know- that even if you are the co chair of the largest march in US history with a million on your side- white supremacists, the right wing & Zionist lobbies will criminalize you and dehumanize you, regardless of who you are, how you look, and what you’ve done. -Aber Kawas
