[!!!Please Forward!!!] Don't Miss this Chance!
Come Eat Dinner with Palestinian activist and Israeli anarchist!!
Where: Alwan Center for the Arts 16 Beaver Street, 4th floor. Manhattan
When: Saturday, October 15 6:00pm --- Cost: Free!!
Come hear inspiring stories of resistance and watch footage of actions against the Israeli military shown for the first time in New York City. Ayed Morrar, an activist from the West Bank town of Budrus and Jonathan Pollack, an anarchist from Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall, are going to be in New York to talk about the on-going resistance in Palestine against Israeli occupation.
This is your chance to share in a Ramadan break-the-fast feast with activists who put their lives on the line everyday.
Ayed was active during the 1988 intifada, and was later imprisoned for 6 years for his participation. In 2003, he, along with the other residents of the small village of Budrus, became the first Palestinian town to stop the construction of The Wall and move its path using direct action.
Jonathan and other Israeli anarchists have participated in over 200 anti-Wall actions, putting their lives on the line time and again in one of the only areas in the world where anarchists are consistently (some months, daily) in direct confrontation with the state and have been for over 2 years.
Because Ayed will be fasting for Ramadan, dinner will start as soon as they arrive, so don't be late!!
