Special Program: Becoming Political Actors
Strategies for Liberating Palestine As We Enter the Biden Administration
After decades of campaigning, lobbying, and protest, how should we evaluate the struggle for Palestinian national rights, particularly as we enter into the Biden Administration? After the death of the two-state solution and the willingness of Arab regimes to normalize with Israel, what strategy is necessary to continue our struggle? Can legislative lobbying, grassroots protest, BDS, or campaigns for Palestinian human and national rights succeed without a political program that envisions a just end-game? And if not, what is our program, our plan, our vision? Is the establishment of a single democracy between the River and the Sea the only way Palestinians will be liberated and an inclusive polity replace apartheid?
What, then, should be our goals and strategy as we enter into the Biden administration? For what are we advocating? And how do we mobilize American public opinion and the grassroots as effective advocates? These critical questions are at the center of this webinar’s important discussion.
