Other Palestine Solidarity

On March 14, Vermonters for a Just Peace in Palestine/Israel (VTJP) launched a campaign urging Ben & Jerry's to stop selling and catering to Jewish-only settlements in occupied Palestine. Since then, close to 3,500 people have signed a petition to the company, 650 emails were sent to Ben & Jerry's CEO, and more than 80 organizations have endorsed the campaign. To all those who have taken action so far, VTJP would like to say: Thank you. It makes a difference.

Premilla Nadasen, Women and Gender in Palestine: Reflections from an Anti-Apartheid Activist

Jasbir Puar, Queer BDS: Homonationalism and the Occupation

Moderated by Riham Barghouti

This event is part of Israeli Apartheid Week. See the full NYC calendar HERE.

In June 2011, eleven indigenous and women of color scholars, activists, and artists visited occupied Palestine. In January 2012, a diverse group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and trans activists, academics, artists, and cultural workers from the US participated in a solidarity tour in Palestine. Both groups returned to publish statements about what they saw and learned, the connections they made between and among struggles, and their unequivocal support for the Palestinian civil society call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel until it guarantees rights for Palestinian people. Members of these delegations will share their reflections on solidarity in the context of their recent trips, and offer suggestions for moving forward.

 

Palestinians Tell the World: Sovereignty Means Securing ALL Our Rights!

Palestinians and their supporters everywhere are mobilizing to remind the world of their right to self-determination. In New York we are marching to the United Nations because the world's attention is focused on the vote on Palestine scheduled to take place there.

For over six decades, the U.N. has approved numerous resolutions promising Palestinians their basic rights, none of which has been implemented. We come to the U.N. to demand:
