Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network is honoured to join with the Masar Badil, the Palestinian Alternative Revolutionary Path Movement, in calling all activists, organizers and supporters of Palestine in North America to join us in Ottawa on Algonquin Anishinaabe Land, April 28-30, 2023, for the Liberation Conference.

The conference will focus on collective liberation and confrontation of colonialism linking Indigenous, Black, Palestinian and workers’ liberation movements.

This gathering will focus specifically on building the liberation struggle in North America.  Organizations and activists working to achieve this and in support of our key principles are invited to attend and participate.

This conference is taking place on the unceded and unsurrendered land of the Algonquin Anishinaabe Nation. We stand in full solidarity with Indigenous struggles for self-determination and sovereignty and against Canadian and U.S. settler colonialism.

This congregation will build on the learnings and internationalist network of the Masar Badil, the Palestinian Alternative Revolutionary Path Movement, especially its week of actions in Brussels during October 2022 and its founding conference in Madrid, Sao Paulo and Beirut in October 2021.
