Ironically, emphasizing the need for this very forum, there were serious attempts by the Zionist lobby to prohibit it from taking place, including an unsuccessful lawsuit! Today we will hear Professor and forum organizer Sut Jhally, distinguished activist Angela Davis, moderator Vijay Prashad, and Nation columnist Dave Zirin. Next week we will feature the other speakers, Linda Sarsour, Roger Waters, and Marc Lamont Hill.

After all of this, we read Nada Elia's comments in Mondoweiss on the heartbreak of learning that freshly elected Congress member Ayanna Pressley has now revealed herself as "Progressive except Palestine" by voting with AIPAC to condemn BDS, and then flimsily defending her vote. [Our very own area's longtime U.S. Representative Katherine Clark did exactly the same.]
