“The right of return is absolutely the most significant right in the BDS call” (Omar Barghouti, co-founder, Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaign against apartheid Israel).

Zionist ethnic cleansing of the indigenous Palestinian population was central to the creation of apartheid Israel. That crime continues today, both through ongoing dispossession of Palestinians inside the “Jewish state,” as well as through denial of Palestinian refugees’ right to return to their homeland. Please join us for a discussion of this crucial right and its relationship to BDS activism and the struggle for justice throughout historic Palestine.

Panel:

Lamis Deek, Al-Awda NY: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition
Amin Husain, Direct Action Front for Palestine
David Letwin, Jews for Palestinian Right of Return

Q & A to follow.
