...from Iraq to Palestine, making the connections
March 12th, 2004
Women's Building, 3543 18th St. #8, Auditorium
As the Occupation of Iraq continues to look more and more like the Occupation of Palestine, from barbed wire fences surrounding whole cities, the plowing down of farmers fields, thousands of house to house raids of "suspected resisters", to the indiscriminate killing of Iraqis, there is a question in the US anti-war movement, can we be against the Occupation of Iraq without taking up the Occupation of Palestine?
Please join us for this open forum, as we look at the connections between the occupation of Palestine and Iraq, the history of Israel's occupation of Palestine and Palestinian resistance, and why the US government spends billions of dollars a year to fund the Israeli Military Forces and support Israel. There will be an interactive and open forum for discussion, debate and questions following the speakers. Please come out to listen, question and discuss these important issues that will help to propel the US anti-war movement forward as we strengthen our politics!
