"BREAK FREE FROM APARTHEID": A WEEK OF EVENTS IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE AND THEIR STRUGGLE FOR EQUALITY, HUMAN RIGHTS AND JUSTICE!
In conjunction with the (inter) national Israeli Apartheid Week, UC Berkeley Students for Justice in Palestine is pleased to announce the following event:
Tuesday 2/5: Right to Education Campaign Teach-In
7pm, 60 Evans, UC Berkeley
Featuring presentations by "FRESH! (Freshly Redefining Education for Students through Hip-hop) and other local community education activists and a screening of the short film "Lucky Ahmed" on barriers students face in trying to complete their education under Occupation, prepared by student activists in the West Bank.
From the Bay to the Mediterranean, brown, poor disenfranchised people are fighting for their basic rights. Hundreds of miles away, Palestinians are deprived of their education in the Occupied Territories of the West Bank and the Gaza strip, and their cousins are denied a narrative because of apartheid neglect within the state of Israel. At the same time, our own education system lies about the history of minorities in this country and deprives people of color of their right to education. Our communities can learn from each other's struggles and successes, so we are gathering together in this event to teach one another how to commit organized struggle for the right to our own minds and stories.
