Sun Oct 9 2011 (Updated 10/10/11) ICAHD's Directer Jeff Halper to Speak at UC Berkeley on October 14th
Jeff Halper-Israel Palestine: Where Are We Headed? On Friday, October 14th, Jeff Halper, director of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolition, will be speaking at 110 Boalt Hall, School of Law, UC Berkeley. Halper, who has been arrested many times for his nonviolent direct action against house demolition by the Israeli police and military, was also arrested in 2008 for sailing to Gaza.

In 2006 Halper was also nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by the American Friends Service Committee for his work "to liberate both the Palestinian and the Israeli people from the yoke of structural violence" and "to build equality between their people by recognizing and celebrating their common humanity".

The Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions was one of the first Israeli organizations to endorse the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign, issuing its call to the international community in January, 2005. Over the past decade and a half ICAHD has played a key role in expanding the BDS campaign and working with groups around the world to identify effective targets.
