Palestine, 2018

EVENT: Palestine, 2018

The last few months have been a tumultuous time in Palestine: as Trump pushes to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Israel’s right wing parties drop the facade of the two-state solution and plot to annex broad swathes of the West Bank, Gaza struggles through ongoing economic crises brought on by an Israeli embargo, and teenage activist Ahed Tamimi faces a military court with a 99% conviction rate for the crime of embarrassing the Israeli regime, all against the backdrop of the daily indignities faced by Palestinians living under the Occupation.

Still, cracks of hope are forming in the walls of apartheid: BDS measures have been gaining steam internationally, and the Israeli state’s attempts to discredit their detractors have become increasingly desperate and reactionary. Join the Stanford Branch of the International Socialist Organization to discuss the most recent developments, as well as a socialist view of the nature and history of the Palestinian Liberation movement as a whole
