Before Hamas’s horrific attack on Israel on October 7 we were mainly aware of two existential threats: the impending death of democracy and climate catastrophe. But that attack and Israel’s unrelenting response has split our attention and overwhelmed us with a barrage of issues that we cannot ignore.

On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with long time labor, climate and peace activists Laurie King and Maxine Fookson, about the war in Gaza and how it impacts all the other organizing on other fronts that we need to do.
