Jewish anti-zionist gathering in Detroit

Jews confront apartheid:

JOIN US FOR AN HISTORIC EVENT!

THE FIRST NATIONAL JEWISH ANTI-ZIONIST GATHERING

PRIOR TO THE 2010 UNITED STATES SOCIAL FORUM

JUNE 19-22, 2010: DETROIT

The 2010 US Social Forum comes at a time when there is great urgency to build on recent successes of the Palestine solidarity movement, as United States corporations and the government continue to commit grave injustices in Palestine- not to mention in our own communities. Organized anti-Zionist Jews in the United States can play a critical role in movements with anti-racism and anti-imperialism at the center, andbuilding stronger international solidarity.

Come together with other anti-Zionist Jewish activists committed to challenging racism, colonialism and imperialism- first and foremost by contributing to efforts to overcome Zionism and decolonize Palestine.

  • Build a shared direction and shared strategies for anti-Zionist Jewish organizing in the US, and build relationships across locations for ourorganizing efforts
  • Advance the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions,including: campaigns against the Jewish National Fund; citywide tostatewide divestment and boycott campaigns; labor divestment from Israeli bonds and the Histadrut, Israel’s founding labor Zionist organization
  • Develop anti-Zionist Jewish political perspectives and analysis, art, culture, and spiritual practice against Zionism’s attempt to erase or co-opt our multiple social, cultural and political histories

We welcome all who are interested in supporting the organizing of anti-Zionist Jews as part of the broader Palestine solidarity movement and anti-racist, anti-imperialist organizing in the United States. However, the Assembly is oriented toward Jews confronting Zionism.

This event is being organized by the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network, Middle East Children’s Alliance, and Philadelphia Jews for a Just Peace

More information regarding how to register; economic, physical and language accessibility; childcare; and more is forthcoming; if you have questions, please contact us at 2010Assembly@JewsConfrontApartheid.org
