Palestinians Refuse To Be "Cleansed" From Their Land
. Dennis Banks, American Indian Movement (AIM)
. Alice Walker, writer
. Zwelinzima Vavi, Gen. Sec., Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU)
AIM leader Dennis Banks, renowned author Alice Walker, and South African labor leader Vavi came together to an international tribunal to grapple with Israel's occupation of Palestine, and strategize how to build greater support internationally for Palestinian self-determination. They reveal Israel as an occupier, an aggressor, confiscating Palestinian land and removing the indigenous residents and then when faced with resistance, operating in a fashion that each panelist viewed through the historical lens of their own people's brutalization. Dennis Banks reflected on the genocide of Native Americans, Walker referenced the enslavement of Africans and American institutional racism and Vivi thought that the South African system of Apartheid was echoed by Israel's treatment of Palestinians.
