DEBATE: ISRAEL/PALESTINE: WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

ISRAEL/PALESTINE : What should we do?

7.30pm
TUESDAY 24th
QUEENS' COLLEGE,
BOWETT ROOM

There is devastation in Gaza. Palestine remains blockaded and occupied. Rockets fire into Sderot and Ashkelon. We have born witness to years of conflict in Palestine and Israel. This country has played and continues to play it’s part in the story. This debate asks what we - as students and academics at UK universities and as UK residents - should be doing?

What is the right way forward? How, if at all, should we try to influence this process?

Four speakers will present their perspectives on what should be done, and on what we can and should do:
Betty Hunter— Palestine Solidarity Campaign
Jonathan Hoffman—Zionist Federation
David Massey—Anarchists Against the Wall
Dan Judelson—Jews for Justice for Palestinians Betty Hunter will open the debate, presenting the case for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions.

Each speaker will make their case for 10 minutes and then the floor will be open for your questions.

These are important and sensitive issues, all are welcome, please inform friends and colleagues and please join us.

If you are a student, please bring uni ID. If you are not a university student then please contact Beccy at with your name and she will add you to the list.
