Please join Samidoun Vancouver for an evening forum on Sunday, December 17:

The Palestinian Liberation Struggle:
Confronting Zionism and Imperialism – Next Steps

Sunday, December 17
5 pm to 8:30 pm (Light dinner will be served!)
Grandview Church
1803 E 1st Ave
Vancouver, BC

Thousands of people are taking to the streets of Vancouver every week to march for Palestine over the past nine weeks. Sit-ins, die-ins, office occupations, boycotts and student walkouts are proliferating as people organize in their communities, workplaces, schools and social groups. At the same time, over 18,000 Palestinian lives have been taken in Gaza by the Zionist genocidal bombardment, backed, supported and funded by Canada alongside the United States, Britain, Germany, France and their imperialist partners.

Join us for a forum on the Palestinian liberation struggle, the local, national and international context, and our next steps. The evening will begin with a panel and roundtable on youth and student organizing at the forefront of mobilization in North America, as well as the resistance to repression and silencing tactics in workplaces and campuses, followed by a light dinner and discussion. Following our dinner, our second panel and roundtable will focus on labour and Palestine and the international movement, including a reportback from the recent Global Campaign to Return to Palestine conference on Nelson Mandela and Palestine in Johannesburg, South Africa, and concluding with an open facilitated discussion with presenters and attendees.

Participants will include student organizers and members of Labour for Palestine, Palestinian Youth Movement, United in Struggle and Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.
