February 29 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

Challenging dominant narratives in Israeli society can sometimes get you into trouble. Meir Baruchin is an Israeli high school civics teachers who was arrested for sharing posts on his Facebook page of Palestinians who had been killed in Gaza. MK Ofer Cassif is a member of the Knesset (Parliament) where his colleagues tried to expel him because he voiced support for the South Africa case at the ICJ (International Court of Justice). Both of them will talk about the repression that they faced as well as the overall repressive atmosphere in Israel and why that is happening. We will hold an empty chair for the Palestinians that we tried to invite as speakers, who cannot participate out of fear of retaliation or repression.
