FROM GENOCIDE IN GAZA TO DECOLONIZING PALESTINE: TOWARDS A DEMOCRATIC STATE FOR ALL BETWEEN THE RIVER AND THE SEA 

 

Even as the genocide in Gaza continues, the US and Europe are plotting with Saudi Arabia to "normalize" Israel's place in the region, leaving the Palestinians trapped in the tiny enclaves of Israel's apartheid regime forever. While our attention and hearts are focused on Gaza, we civil society actors cannot abandon the wider fight for Palestinian rights and a better future for everyone between the River and the Sea, now in a critical phase.

As a founding member of the Palestinian-led One Democratic State Campaign (ODSC), Jeff will present the ODSC's program for replacing Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory with a democratic state of equal rights for all - including the returning refugees. This, he argues, is the only substantially just way forward, but it is strewn with complex and difficult issues we will discuss. There will be lots of time for discussion.
