Abel Macias, Party for Socialism and Liberation
There will be discussion, questions and a book signing.
This important book breaks through the media's lies and distortions about the Palestinian people's decades-long struggle for their homeland. Becker is now on a nationwide speaking tour about Palestine and his new book.
Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire provides a sharp analysis of historic and current events in the struggle for Palestine—from the division of the Middle East by Western powers and the Zionist settler movement, to the founding of Israel and its regional role as a watchdog for U.S. interests, to present-day conflicts and the prospects for a just resolution.
You can also purchase a copy at the San Diego event.
Here's what activists and scholars are saying about the book:
“Becker gives us the most sharply focused and penetrating analysis we have of the real dynamics at work in the continuing persecution of the Palestinian people. He calls for international unity among all people to end this tragic injustice. Hear his call and join in the struggle.”
—Ramsey Clark, former U.S. attorney general, former litigation attorney for the Palestine Liberation Organization
“A must-read for anyone seeking to understand the Palestinian cause."
—Samera Sood, executive board, Palestinian American Women's Association
