Join us in a discussion about the political questions confronting the Palestinian Solidarity movement as well as the developments in the global BDS movement and on the ground in Palestine. After the discussion many of us will join the Millions March, to demand justice for Eric Garner, Mike Brown, and all victims of police murder. [http://on.fb.me/125ctYa]
In recent months rhetoric in support of a “Palestinian State” has been amplified, particularly in Europe, with a recent meeting of European Foreign ministers on the topic and the successive parliamentary “symbolic” votes in Britain, Ireland, and Spain. The symbolic votes followed a binding vote in Sweden officially recognizing the Palestinian State. Are these gestures signals of an attempt to resurrect the “two state solution,” or as Ali Abunimah of the Electronic Intifada refers to it, “the two state problem?” Is this rhetoric a response to or even an attempt to quell Palestinian unrest and the escalating BDS movement? What kind of state can uphold Palestinian rights, including the right of return?
We invite Palestinian Solidarity activists to bring their experience and perspective to this discussion.
