Dear World, 

We are pleased to announce the launch of our newest publication: The Veritas Papers. They are a set of 15 pamphlets that cover a wide range of issues from the ethnic cleansing of Palestine to the boycott movement to celebrities who support the cause. Each of the pamphlets can fit on a single letter-sized page. They are available for a free PDF download and we highly encourage all to print and distribute them as widely as possible. We also made a mildly entertaining youtube video to spread the word. 

One of the most difficult aspects of outreach is finding appropriate materials that a general audience will find interesting and informative. The history is indeed detailed, however, the problem is pretty simple in that it is the story of the occupied vs. the occupier. When we released The Veritas Handbook in July 2010, one of the most common things the editor heard was “Whaaaat…. 347 pages?!” For these (lazy) individuals, and those completely uninformed, we decided to release The Veritas Papers, something much shorter and accessible. 

When reading and distributing The Veritas Papers, we ask you to keep in mind the words of Rafeef Ziadeh, who, in her (excellent) piece titled “We teach life,sir” says:Today, my body was a TV’d massacre that had to fit into sound-bites and word limits filled enough with statistics...” The Palestinian struggle cannot be limited to, nor demeaned to fit a few pieces of paper. It cannot fit into word limits and papers.This is a human struggle, and no words can do it justice. 

What makes The Veritas Papers stand out amongst other pamphlets, is their accessibility and attractiveness. Each of the papers has been designed to print on a single letter-sized paper (on both sides), in a booklet format, and they look pretty good. There is a grand total of 15 papers including addenda. 

The papers are titled as follows (links can be used to go to the page for each paper):

Here’s some additional information on The Veritas Papers:
  • They’re FREE and can be downloaded on our website! Print, print, and PRINT (but save trees)
  • We have designed them in colour (so they look pretty good, if we do say so ourselves)—but they also print pretty nicely in black and white.
  • Fact Checked: Due to the space limitations on an 8.5x11 piece of paper, our references are linked on our website instead. Send all doubters there! The website contains links to the resources used in each paper and we hope that this will make our work more accountable and reliable.
  • In case you don’t remember us…. The Veritas Papers were released by The Veritas Handbook: A Guide to Understanding the Struggle for Palestinian Human Rights. Check it out!

These papers can hardly be called an introduction. Rather, the purpose of these papers is to garner an interest for people to educate themselves on the occupation. There are so many subjects that still need to be covered, including media, prisoners, refugees, children, solutions, access to resources and more. We hope to cover these in the soon future.

We hope that The Veritas Papers will benefit Palestine solidarity movements and we look forward to hearing your feedback. We have created a survey and would love to hear your thoughts and feedback. Please fill it out by clicking here.

And don't forget to spread the word, far and wide, across the globe! 

In peace and solidarity, 

The Veritas Team
