Free admission, retiring collection to cover costs

 

In this Powerpoint presentation, Jeff Halper and prominent Palestinian activist and award-winning political caracaturist Mohammad Sabaabeh argue that the Matrix of Control which Israel has laid over the Occupied Territory has effectively eliminated the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian “conflict” and has produced instead a regime of apartheid.

Faced with apartheid and the permanent ‘warehousing’ of the Palestinians, they go on to outline the only just solution that Israel has left us with: a single constitutional democracy: one country, one citizenship, one parliament and one shared civil society in which its people's collective rights are also protected. The two speakers explore in depth how such a solution would work and what we need to do to reach it.

There will be a collection at the end of the talk to cover costs and raise funds.
