Despite all attacks – from Zionist forces, from University administration, from
the State and the Governor – the Rutgers conference on Palestine, the Third
North American Conference on the Palestine Solidarity Movement, is CONTINUING
ON and GOING STRONG!! We have struggled with the governor, the University and
Zionist forces from across the country. They have tried their best to silence
this conference – but it will not be silenced! The situation in Palestine is
critical and our solidarity is needed and essential! We will be anywhere- in
public space and private – to organize for Palestine, and our voices will be
heard at Rutgers University this weekend, telling everyone there clearly that
Palestine inspires us – and the world – and making clear with our demonstration
that we will not be removed from campus!

TO GO in New Brunswick!!

We have over 1100 letters to the Rutgers administration written in support of
the conference, 500 registered participants, 218 organizational endorsers, 1275
individual endorsers of the conference and many more still going on, and an
exciting and growing schedule of workshops and speakers! (Please see for more specifics!)
