Socialism and the Struggle for Palestine
Palestine holds a central place in socialist organizing, and the role of socialism is crucial to the struggle to free Palestine. To mark the recent publication of Palestine: A Socialist Introduction, our speakers will discuss possibilities for connecting the struggle against occupation and apartheid in Palestine, to the international solidarity movement and growing support for socialism across the globe.
We will analyse the impact of recent normalization agreements between Israel and Arab states, the upcoming Palestinian Authority elections, and how we can build a global socialist movement that tackles Israeli apartheid. Join Sumaya Awad, brian bean and Yara Hawari for a discussion on these themes, chaired by Ilan Pappé.
Palestine: A Socialist Introduction systematically tackles a number of important aspects of the Palestinian struggle for liberation, contextualizing it in an increasingly polarized world and offering a socialist perspective on how full liberation can be won. Contributors include: Jehad Abusalim, Shireen Akram-Boshar, Omar Barghouti, Nada Elia, Toufic Haddad, Remi Kanazi, Annie Levin, Mostafa Omar, Khury Petersen-Smith, and Daphna Thier.
