Palestinian and Israeli Nonviolent Resistance to the Israeli Occupation

Streaming Media

Description

Despite the long history of nonviolent campaigns by Palestinians challenging both British and Zionist colonialism, culminating in the overwhelmingly nonviolent first intifada (1987-93) and the present struggle against the Israeli occupation, this aspect of the Palestinian resistance is vastly under-reported. With her recent interview-based book, Kaufman-Lacusta will highlight non-violent resistance by both Palestinians and Israelis to the Israeli occupation along with ways US citizens can support this resistance. Valued Co-sponsors of Fairhaven Colleges World Issues Forum: Anthropology, Canadian American Studies, Communications, Political Science, Womens Studies, various Associated Students organizations and local community non-profits.
