Phoenix Democratic Socialists of America – What are the historical origins of the Palestinian struggle?

June 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Register in advance for this meeting: http://bit.ly/marxistclassics1
Socialists agree: the violence of the Israeli state and world imperialism against the Palestinian people must end. But what will it take to do this? Before we can propose good political solutions, we must spend some time learning about the history of Palestine and Israel and the conflicts surrounding them.
How did international imperialism influence the creation of the Israeli state? How have Palestinians fought back against their oppression, and what can we learn from their experiences? What are Hamas, the PLO, and the Palestinian Authority?
We will have 2 speakers speaking for 5-10 minutes each, giving short historical summaries. After that the discussion will open to everyone.
Please read these two articles, and bring your opinions, thoughts, questions, and politics!
