March 4: The Arab People’s Revolt, A Night of Solidarity

A Night of Solidarity and Discussion

388 Atlantic Ave.
Brooklyn, NY

In 2011, Arab countries have exploded with mass popular movements that have had radical, and indeed revolutionary results. In Tunisia and Egypt, longtime U.S.-sponsored dictators have fallen, while protests rock Jordan, Algeria, Yemen and occupied Palestine. This unprecedented revolt has provided new hope for a movement to liberate Palestine and the whole Arab world. Join Al-Awda New York to discuss:

+ What is the role of workers in the Arab revolt?
+ What are the challenges yet to come?
+ What do these changes mean for Palestine and the Arab world?
+ What do they mean for people in the U.S. and the world?
+ How can we organize to provide solidarity and support?
+ and much more!

Featuring speakers:

Lamis Deek
Palestinian attorney and activist, co-founder Al-Awda NY

Hoda Mitwally
Egyptian-American student and Middle East solidarity activist from Rutgers University

Emna Zghal
Tunisian visual artist

Part of Israeli Apartheid Week 2011
