Origins of the Crisis in Gaza

As the Gaza Strip endures its third major attack in five years, people around the world are calling for a cease fire and an end to the suffocating blockade. Was this latest carnage triggered by Palestinian rockets, Israeli settler violence, or by Israeli efforts to block a Palestinian unity government? We will address the root causes of the violence and discuss both how to assist the people of Gaza and what we can do to bring about a just resolution.

Dr. Salem Ajluni is an economist and lived in Gaza in 1996-2001. He served as a consultant to the United Nations in Palestine, and worked for the Palestinian Ministry of Planning.

Dr. Sharat G. Lin is a writer on the Middle East, former president of the San Jose Peace and Justice Center, and an originator of the Cairo Declaration on global BDS.

The program will be followed by a short letter-writing session to elected officials and the media. Writing materials and addresses will be provided.

Free and open to the public
Wheelchair accessible

Endorsed by the San José Peace and Justice Center
