17 November, NYC: Free them All – Abolition Across Borders

Thursday, 17 November
5:30 pm
VH214, New York University

LSJP and @nyu_epic are co-hosting a panel titled Free Them All: Abolition Across Borders. The event will take place on Thursday, November 17 at 5:30 PM in VH214 at New York University and on Zoom.

Last year’s historic escape by 6 Palestinian freedom fighters from an occupation prison brought attention to this long-standing history of solidarity as Palestinian organizers drew connections to the Attica Prison Riot of 1971, which inspired a Palestinian uprising in the Ashkelon prison.

Speakers will include Dylan Saba from @pal_legal and Hussein from the NY/NJ chapter of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network @samidounnynj, as well as other U.S.-based abolitionist organizers. Byul Yoon, co-founder of Dissenters (https://wearedissenters.org/) and a 1L at NYU Law, will facilitate. We will discuss the connected histories and common struggles of folks organizing for liberation in Palestine and the United States.
