    The Black Goat Act

    The Black Goat Act

    Within this bonus podcast episode, we explore the “Black Goat Act” with Rabea Eghbariah. The Black Goat Act, imposed by the Israeli government in 1950, criminalized the possession and herding of black goats, targeting the most abundant livestock animal in Palestine and centuries-old farming tradition. Enacted by colonial powers and without scientific rationale, we discuss the different ways Israel has used and enforced this legislation throughout history to further its agenda of Palestinian erasure and dispossession.

    Criminal Foods

    Criminal Foods

    In this episode, we explore the criminalization of three popular edible plants within Palestine with our guest Rabea Eghbariah. Zaatar, akkoub, and mirimiya are famously associated with Palestine, and yet there is currently a legal ban on their picking, possession, and trade. We discuss the cultural and economic history of these plants within Palestine as well as the history and significance of the legal ban by the Israeli Nature and Parks Authority.
