Since the murder of nine pro-Palestine activists by Israeli commandos during their raid on the Gaza flotilla, the world has voiced its nearly unanimous outrage. After more than sixty years of occupation, repeated invasions of neighboring states, the expansion of illegal settlements and the deadly blockade of Gaza, has Israel finally gone to far?

The American government stands nearly alone in it continued support for Israel’s crimes. Please join us for a special event that will discuss strategies for breaking the siege and building an international movement based on boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel.

Speakers:

Paul Larudee - Participant in the Gaza Flotilla, eyewitness to the attack, co-founder of the Free Gaza Movement

Dr. Jess Ghannam, National Coordinating Committee Chair of Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition

Wael Elasady, co-founder of SUPER, Students United for Palestinian Equal Rights at Portland State University

Sherry Wolf, leading member of the International Socialist Organization and long-time anti-Zionist Jewish activist

This event is a special evening panel at the West Coast Socialism Conference.
