ADAM SHAPIRO and HUWAIDA ARRAF: Life Under Israeli Occupation: International Solidarity Movement Activists Report Back Monday, January 6th, 7:00pm New College Cultural Center, 766 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA (Free) To listen to Live Webcast:: www.newcollege.edu/cesa/ Huwaida Arraf and Adam Shapiro are members of The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) that began peacefully and creatively intervening on behalf of Palestinian human rights last year, just as Israel stepped up its military offensive in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Since that time the ISM has joined campaigns to accompany Palestinians living under military curfews, harvesting crops, and resisting land grabs and home destruction by Israeli settlers and occupation authorities. Shapiro, spent a day in Palestinian President Yassar Arafat’s Presidential Compound in Ramallah while it was besieged by the Israeli Army in the Spring or 2003. Arraf and Shapiro will offer reflections on the first year of ISM's work and a report back from Arraf’s recent trip to Palestine, focused on the enormous wall currently being built by Israel in the occupied territories. They will also give updates on upcoming ISM campaigns and answer questions about their efforts and what is required for participation in upcoming peace activities including Freedom Summer. Finally they will comment on the Bush plans for War against Iraq, the development of a nonviolent resistance movement in Palestine, and what Americans can do to promote peace and justice in the Middle East. Sponsored by Global Exchange, International Solidarity Movement, and New College of California.
