The Students for Justice (only?) in Palestine at UCLA Presents:
SJP’s annual Palestine Awareness Week is finally here! Palestine Awareness week is a week of packed day and night programming, where we educate our campus on the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. During this week, we’re going to be advocating for:
• An end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip.
… • The establishment of either a fully independent and viable Palestinian state in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, or of one secular, democratic state over all of modern-day Israel and Palestine.
• An end to Israel’s system of apartheid in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, as well as its system of discrimination against the Arab population within its own borders.
• A just solution to the Palestinian refugee problem.
The main purpose of this week is to come together and UNITE, use what we know about this conflict and educate ourselves, and our UCLA student body. promote justice, human rights, liberation, and self-determination for the Palestinian people.
This year, our events include:
