Brighton: JVL fringe meeting ‘Let’s talk about Palestine’
September 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Beyond the stifling smokescreen of antisemitism allegations hurled at supporters of justice for Palestine, JVL’s fringe meeting will go to the heart of the issue – the layers of the Occupation within Israel and the Occupied Territories, the role of the Israeli Labour Party, and the UK Labour Party’s relationship to these issues.
Haneen Zoabi, ten years a Palestinian member of the Knesset, will describe life for Palestinians in Israel, the structures of oppression and the roles of political parties under the Israeli state.
Ilan Pappe, Director of the European Centre for Palestinian Studies and Professor at Exeter University, will describe the processes of ethnic cleansing and the roles of the UK, its institutions and political parties.
