Fault Lines investigates the suppression of Palestine advocacy on college campuses in the United States.

Fault Lines investigates what the crackdown on Palestine advocacy means for academic freedom in the United States.

Doxxing. Blacklists. Terminations. Investigations. Hate mail and death threats. And accusations of anti-Semitism and material support for terrorism. These are some of the ways in which pro-Israel advocacy groups have tried to silence and intimidate pro-Palestinian voices in the US for years.

But since October 7, these kinds of attacks have intensified. Constitutional rights advocates have called this a McCarthy-era moment for speech, suppression, and university campuses are on the front lines.
