Students for Justice in Palestine is overjoyed to invite you to the first event in our November series! Please join us for the screening of a new documentary on our historic 2010 divestment campaign at UC Berkeley. For those who were present, for those who only heard about it--come, and bring your friends!

Using various interviews, film from the Berkeley student senate proceedings, and supporting documentary footage from Palestinian territories and Egypt, PRESSURE POINTS is a documentary that explores the
dynamics of the debate on Israel's human rights abuses and its historic significance within U.S. social justice movements. Testimony of pro-Israel students from groups such as Hillel and top Israeli diplomat Akiva Tor is counterpointed in the film by witnesses including several Palestinian students, a Holocaust survivor, representatives from Jewish Voice for Peace, diverse student activists, and noted academics.
