On Thursday, Nov. 17 at 6:30 pm, an event in solidarity with the opening of Tristan Anderson's trial holding the Israeli military responsible for shooting him in the head with a tear gas cannister will be held at the Art House in Berkeley, 2905 Shattuck near Ashby.
Accompanying the update on legal challenges will be music, featuring David Rovics, Andrea Pritchett, Ayr and the Funky Nixons acoustic.
A panel discussion will start with a live update from the first day of trial in Israel from Tristan's friend Gabby who was with him when he was shot, and a statement from Tristan. Other panelists include Ayr, Paul Larudee from the International Solidarity Movement, and Barbara Lubin from the Middle East Childrens’ Alliance, speaking about current situations in Palestine. We will also give a shout out to Occupy Oakland and Iraq veteren Scott Olson, who was injured in a similar way via police action at Occupy Oakland and remains in recovery.
This event is free; donations welcome. Info at 510-547-7486
