UPDATE: BECOMING POLITICAL ACTORS

Strategies for Palestinian Liberation As We Enter the Biden Administration

Sunday, December 13, 3:00pm Eastern Time
Speakers:
  • Awad Abdelfattah – Palestinian coordinator, One Democratic State Campaign; former Secretary-General, Balad/Tajamo party
  • Huwaida Arraf – Palestinian-American human rights lawyer; co-founder, International Solidarity Movement
  • Beth Miller – Senior Government Affairs Manager, Jewish Voice for Peace Action; formerly No Way to Treat a Child campaign
  • Jeff Halper – Israel Committee Against House Demolitions; One Democratic State Campaign
  • Robert Herbst (Moderator) – American human rights lawyer and Palestinian rights advocate; served as special investigator/prosecutor to International criminal tribunals
  • Michael Spath (Host) – Indiana Center for Middle East Peace; ICAHD-USA; United Church of Christ Palestine-Israel Network
After decades of campaigning, lobbying, and protest, how should we evaluate the struggle for Palestinian national rights, particularly as we enter into the Biden Administration? After the death of the two-state solution and the willingness of Arab regimes to normalize with Israel, what strategy is necessary to continue our struggle? Can legislative lobbying, grassroots protest, BDS or campaigns for Palestinian human and national rights succeed without a political program that envisions a just end-game? And if not, what is our program, our plan, our vision? Is the establishment of a single democracy between the River and the Sea the only way Palestinians will be liberated and an inclusive polity replace apartheid?
What, then, should be our goals and strategy as we enter into the Biden administration? For what are we advocating? And how do we mobilize American public opinion and the grassroots as effective advocates? These critical questions are at the center of this webinar’s important discussion.
