Welcome to the Just Mathematics Collective newsletter.  This is our 
(roughly) monthly round-up of news about our campaigns and activities, 
suggestions for how you can help, and reading we've found useful 




  	* Check out this Piece on Quantitative Power-Mapping [1], written in 
September 2023 by two JMC members​​​​​​​​​​​​​​, which explores the 
potential for mathematical network analysis as an organising tool for 
liberatory movements.

  	* In light of the recent escalation of Israeli genocidal violence 
towards the entire Palestinian nation, the Just Mathematics Collective 
(JMC) urges all scientists and engineers to join the 145 mathematicians, 
among many others, who have heeded the Palestinian call to boycott 
Israeli academic institutions [2]. Learn more about the broadening of 
our campaign and register your pledge here [3].


Signal boosts: stuff we've read this month and want to share


  	* This piece on the recent [4] [5]win of the Harvard Undergraduate 
Workers Union [5].

  	* Prof. Tarik Aougab's talk

	*  Title: _Decolonizing in Mathematics_
Abstract:_ Does the above phrase have any meaning? We'll discuss what 
would have to be true for the answer to be "yes", and in particular 
we'll focus on Palestine and the idea of academic boycott. _ 	* You can
