Since October 2015, the growing popular rebellion in Palestine has been termed a “third intifada.” While Palestinians are taking to the streets, rising up and resisting the Israeli occupation, they are facing ever-increasing repression: settlement construction, settler violence, ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Jerusalem, extrajudicial executions – especially of Palestinian children and youth, mass imprisonment, the escalating use of administrative detention without charge or trial.

For over 67 years, Palestinians have been struggling against colonization, occupation and dispossession. Colonization, land theft, massive dispossession, invasions and mass arrests and occupation have sparked repeated Palestinian uprisings. Join this discussion to learn more about what is happening on the ground in Palestine today, and what we can do to build a movement to defend Palestinian rights and the Palestinian people, including organizing for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS).

With speakers:

Khaled Barakat is a Palestinian leftist writer. He will speak about the current situation in Palestine, the political developments in Palestine today, and Palestinian resistance.

Charlotte Kates is the international coordinator of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network. She will speak on Palestinian prisoners and the call for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS).
