A talk on Palestine given at the 2005 Renewing the Anarchist Tradition Conference in Plainfield, Vermont. For more info, www.homemadejam.org/renew.
Produced by Aaron Lakoff (aaron@resist.ca).
Certainly we can be effective working within our own communities, but does internatinoal activism offer an extra effectiveness worthy of the resources needed to be physically present with communities in struggle in places like Palestine? This talk includes a framing of Palestine as dual struggle - anti-colonial (vs. Israel) and anti-imperialist (vs. the United States) - a brief update on current on-the-ground resistance, and a discussoin of these and related questions.

-->Ben is a founding member of BostontoPalestine, which sends internationals on solidarity delegations to the West Bank and also to actually join indigenous nonviolent resistance to the occupation. Returning activists inform others of what they learned from their experience in order to activate their home communities.
