The next event in solidarity with USACBI as part of the Resist Racist Repression, Defend Solidarity with the Palestinian People: National Defense Campaign will take place on Sunday, October 21 from 3 pm to 5 pm at 518 Valencia St in San Francisco.
USACBI is co-sponsoring this event along with Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC), National Lawyers Guild (NLG) – Bay Area, Palestine Legal, Center for Political Education (CPE), Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM) and International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAN).
This event will:
– highlight the ASA lawsuit as an attack on the academic boycott and BDS movement in the context of broader right-wing and Zionist repression, including of students/GUPS activists
– build support for academic boycott organizing and the Study Abroad in Israel boycott campaign: http://usacbi.org/boycott-study-abroad-in-israel/
– connect freedom of movement across colonial borders in the US/North America and in Palestine, linking Israel’s deportations and ban on Palestinian travel to sanctuary activism and immigrant/refugee solidarity here
