Why is Palestine a socialist issue? Join us for our Socialist Night School: Palestine and BDS 101 on Thursday, June 24th 7pm - 9pm EST / 6pm - 8pm CT to learn about the basics of the history of ethnic cleansing, settler-colonialism, and apartheid in Palestine. You will also learn about the BDS Movement, which DSA endorsed at the national convention in 2017, and what we, as socialists, can do to support Palestinian freedom, justice and equality. Our panel will contextualize the recent uprisings of Palestinians in response to the escalation of violence and dispossession in Jerusalem neighborhoods like Sheikh Jarrah and the Gaza strip. The panel is cosponsored by Metro DC DSA and Middle Tennessee DSA, featuring panelists from the Palestinian Youth Movement, Students for Justice in Palestine, and the Elmahaba Center.


This event is open to both DSA Members and supporters.
