Abstract

In this commentary, I provide an update on Simaan's (2017) study about olive growing in Palestine as part of the Journal of Occupational Science’s virtual anti-racism issue (Farias & Simaan, 2020), in which Simaan (2017) was re published. I offer some reflections on my understanding of systemic racism, and on some of the similarities between the situation in the USA and Palestine. I then reflect on ideas from both of those communities on how to tackle global systemic racism, including an update on how solidarity has been practised during 2020. I conclude with some thoughts about plans for continuing research among occupational communities in Palestine.
