When: 7 pm
Join SJP for a lecture panel by Amer Shurrab and Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb.Amer Shurrab is a Palestinian from Khan Yunis and a graduate of Vermont’s Middlebury College. His father and two brothers were fleeing their village when their vehicle came under Israeli fire. Twenty-eight-year-old Kassab died in a hail of bullets trying to flee the vehicle. Eighteen-year-old Ibrahim survived the initial attack, but Israeli troops refused to allow an ambulance to reach them until twenty hours later. By then, it was too late. Ibrahim had bled to death in front of his father.

Amer joins us to tell his story.In light of the terrible destruction of Gaza, what does it look like to resist the assault on the Palestinian way of life and, at the same time, build a vision of a world we want to live in together? Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb will share slides and stories from the West Bank, and address Jewish solidarity in the movement to hold Israel accountable for Occupation. Lynn Gottlieb is co-founder of the Muslim Jewish Peacewalk, and on the Advisory Board of Jewish Voice for Peace and a Freeman Fellow of the Fellowship of Reconciliation.

Join us for a guest lecture by Dr. Dalit Baum-Wednesday November 14th at 7 pm @ ASU

Who Profits from the Israeli Occupation? Queer-feminist responses to Corporate Profiteering

SJP and OUTLaw welcome you to a guest lecture on Wednesday, November 14th, at 7 PM in LSE 107, by Dr. Dalit Baum on the Democracy Movement in Israel/Palestine from the feminist perspective, and the Israeli government’s new tactic called “pinkwashing”.

The talk will provide an overview of the economy of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, from a feminist perspective, and a discussion of queer-feminist organizing in 1948/ Israel against militarization, racism and occupation. How can the 99% take on the big corporations that perpetuate war and occupation?

 How can students at ASU engage in economic activism with concrete positive effects on people’s lives in Palestine?Dalit Baum, Ph.D., is an Israeli activist and teacher, who founded “Who Profits from the Occupation”, an activist research project of The Coalition of Women for Peace in Israel. This year she is working in the Bay Area out of the Economic Activism Program of Global Exchange, providing community and campus divest campaigns with resources and tools.
