Israeli Anti-Zionist Speaks Out Against Israeli Apartheid
Featured Speaker: HADAS THIER
Students and community activists around the world, including at Columbia, have been organizing a Boycott, Divestment & Sanction (BDS) campaign to protest Israel’s oppression of Palestinians, so brutally on display in the recent bombing and invasion of Gaza, which killed nearly 1400 people.
This growing international movement is based on the sucessful BDS campaign during the 1970s and 80s that finally helped to end the apartheid regime in South Africa. Thier will speak on the racist character of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian population, and the struggle for Palestinian liberation.
Hadas Thier is a member of the International Socialist Organization and is an Israeli-born anti-Zionist. She has been an activist for Palestinian rights for many years, and is a contributing author to The Struggle for Palestine (Haymarket Books), the International Socialist Review, Counterpunch and ZNet.
8pm, Wednesday, March 25
