Jewish Voice for Peace Boston’s upcoming four-part webinar series on Israeli Annexation entitled “A Palestinian Perspective on Annexation” will take place over the course of four Sunday mornings throughout July and August. We are happy to partner with the Palestine Community of Boston to have Lubneh Shomali, the executive director of BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights, with us to discuss the impending annexation of Palestine. Lubneh is a Palestinian-American activist based in Bethlehem with much to share. Below are descriptions of each session and there is a link to RSVP. There are links to further reading below each event.
1. July 26th: The first session of our four part webinar series will focus on Israeli annexation of the West Bank more broadly. It will explore the histories and realities of annexation as well as delve into the issue through a legal lens.
2. August 2nd: The second session will focus on Trump’s foreign policy in regard to Israel, namely the supposed “Deal of the Century” and his policy’s consequences for Palestinian refugees’ rights and realities.
3. August 9th: The third session will focus specifically on three key ideas: Segregation, Fragmentation and Isolation. It will explore how Israel has entrenched its Apartheid regime over the Palestinian people throughout decades of duplicitous policies and actions.
4. August 16th: The final session will address the developments in and the escalation of conditional funding for Palestinian NGOs – particularly the new conditions applied by the European Union.
We hope that this series will be enlightening and will give you the knowledge to discuss this issue with your family. We hope it will inspire you to learn more and to take action in standing in solidarity with Palestinians.
