Free Palestine: End Israeli Apartheid
Thursday October 2nd, 7pm
RIT, Building 7A, Room 1350 Webb Auditorium
Guest Speaker: Jason Farbman, fellow at the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU
More than 1,800 dead, including 1,300 civilians. Some 10,000 injured. The homes of 60,000 people reduced to rubble. Nearly a quarter of Gaza’s 1.8 million residents on the move in search of somewhere safe to shelter from Israel’s rampage.The brutal Israeli assault on Gaza this past summer combined with the use of repressive force against Palestinians on the West Bank and those who are citizens of Israel, has pushed larger numbers to question the Israeli claim that even the most naked aggression is somehow self defense. Many have begun to see through the consistent media bias in favor of Israel and the hardline support for Israel demonstrated by many governments, including and especially ours. Millions across the world mobilized in solidarity with Gaza.
College campuses have become an ideological battleground anyone daring to criticize Israel’s repression of Palestinians and Students for Justice in Palestine chapters are springing up all across the country.
Join us this Thursday for a discussion of our generations anti-aparthied movement and the international context in which it is developing.
One state with equal rights for all!
