Ali Abunimah is co-founder of the Electronic Intifada and author of "One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse." Back in the bay area by popular demand, Abunimah just participated in the Gaza Freedom March, in Cairo, Egypt, along with 1400 others -- one of the largest international solidarity actions ever.

The aim of the march was to draw attention to the one-year anniversary of the Israeli government's assault on Gaza, which killed 1400 Palestinians, and to call for ending the siege of Gaza which is leaving Gazans with little food, contaminated water, and no supplies to rebuild their homes.

Abunimah's talk will be followed by a Q and A. The event is wheelchair accessible and ASL interpreted. There is plenty of free parking, and the North Berkeley BART is a 10-minute walk away.

Tickets at http://www.mecaforpeace.org or at the door; $15 tickets also available at the following bookstores: (East Bay) Diesel, Pegasus/Shattuck, Pegasus/Solano, Walden Pond; (San Francisco) Modern Times. Note: $8 Student tickets are only available directly from the Middle East Children's Alliance (events [at] mecaforpeace.org, 510-548-0542) or at the door. This event is a benefit for children in Gaza.
