Film screening, October 15: The Lobby – U.S.A. / Discussion: In Defense of Solidarity – Palestine on Campus

USACBI is joining  Jewish Voice for Peace for an important film screening and discussion, especially at this time of confronting censorship and silencing of Palestinian expression.

We will be screening a one-hour supercut and panel discussion of Al Jazeera’s The Lobby – USA, a look into the counterinsurgency projects designed to disrupt Palestine solidarity movement building. This supercut will focus on U.S. college campuses and the Israel lobby’s efforts to disorganize and undermine campus activism.
