Israeli annexation of West Bank land: Realities, dangers, and the quest for justice

Mon June 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Yes It Looks Like Apartheid

We are troubled by the Israeli government’s plan to initiate annexation of a large piece of the West Bank around July 1, which is illegal under international law. How will annexation affect Palestinians? How will it affect Israel? What’s the role of the US? The UN? And how can we help secure justice for Palestinians?
