Canary Mission, a website that compiles dossiers on Palestinian rights advocates and labels them racists, anti-Semites, and supporters of terrorism has taken a toll on activists' mental health and their ability to engage in free speech and public advocacy on Palestine.

Abstract: 
--

Excerpt:

Online blacklists of advocates for Palestine have existed for more than 15 years... but Canary Mission, born in an era of ubiquitous social media use, is of a different breed. It targets students, rather than well-known professors, and it often appears as the first Google result for a search of a student’s name. It has also leveraged the power of social media, tweeting its dossiers and giving Israel’s most vociferous online warriors a list of targets to harass.
