Silencing Palestinian Activism: Jewish Voices Fight Back

Monday, February 28 · 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Crystal Cove Auditorium, UCI

Created By

More Info
Come to this exciting panel featuring three activists sharing Jewish perspectives on Palestinian solidarity activism. The speakers are:

-Matan Cohen, co-founder of the Israeli direct action anti-occupation group Anarchists Against the Wall and coordinator for Hampshire College’s divestment from Israel campaign

-Estee Chandler, from Jewish Voice for Peace, America’s largest Jewish grassroots peace group, which advocates democracy, …human rights, and an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine

-Rachel Roberts, from Young Jewish and Proud, a project created by young leaders within Jewish Voice for Peace

The three activists will discuss their experiences as well as the role students play in Palestinian solidarity activism and what we can do to get involved. They will also connect their struggles to the ongoing attempt to silence Palestinian activism at UCI and other university campuses, providing a powerful challenge to the Zionist narrative that claims that “pro-Palestinian activism threatens Jewish students.”

The panel and following discussion is sure to be interesting, insightful, and lively. Bring your friends and come!

  1. Are these three mopes actually suggesting that pro-Palestinian and anti-Israeli folks have trouble getting their voices heard on college campuses?

    Sounds like these characters have been smoking their socks. Have they forgotton about the Oren incident?
