It's that time again, get ready for the next Alexander Berkman Social Club meeting!
This month we will be meeting a day earlier, Wednesday, August 26th, so mark your calender accordingly.

Our guest this month will be Eyal Rozenberg, an anarchist visiting form Israel/Palestine.

He will be be speaking on the inter-relation of ethnicity and class in Israel/Palestine.

Since the 1950s a common saying in Israel is "taamid dofkim et-ha-shchorim", which means "they always fuck the blacks". Israel is at the same time a capitalist project, a nationalist project and a colonialist project, and being an Arab or being a Jew of non-European descent has always meant that statistically, you're in the lower classes. But it's not as simple as that, and Israeli Capitalism has had in recent decades very interesting strategies of containment, demobilization and co-optation of movements and organizations which have attempted to link the ethnic, the racial or the national (Palestinian)struggle with the class struggle.

Eyal Rozenberg is an anarchist and Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the Technion, Haifa. He was an Executive Committee member in the Technion Graduate Students' Organization, and helped form the Technion Teaching Staff Organization. He is active in Koach La-Ovdim, a new multi-industry general union. Rozenberg was drafted into the IDF at 18, but quit military service in the middle and is the editor of the Conscientious Objector's guide to the Military Prison System

We look forward to seeing you soon, and remember, as always, there will be snacks, raffles, and comradely good cheer!
