Author Event: Lecture and Book Signing by Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi
July 9, 2009 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
On July 5, 2005, on the first anniversary of the ruling of the International Court of Justice that Israel’s Apartheid Wall is illegal and must be torn down, Palestinian civil society launched a call for campaigns of boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS). Today BDS campaigns are flourishing across the United States and around the world, serving as an important nonviolent means of advocating for Palestinian rights.
Author and Israeli dissident Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi will speak on “First Principles: Utopia and Injustice in Palestine and Israel.” He is the author of Original Sins: Reflections on the History of Zionism and Israel.
This event is cosponsored by Busboys and Poets, the U.S. Campaign to End the Occupation, and the Institute for Policy Studies.
