Excerpts from Workshop: Pan-African/Palestine Solidarity

Excerpts from Workshop: Pan-African/Palestine Solidarity from 2010Assembly on Vimeo.

In this workshop, participants laid out the history of Pan-African solidarity with global anti-colonial struggles, including Palestine. The hope was to develop some action steps around Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions within a Pan-Africanist framework and network. The discussion moved from Pan-Africanism to the experiences of anti-Black racism within Jewish communities, the constant fear/reality of being called anti-Semitic for calling out that racism and calling out the criminality of Israel, the need for group study around the history of this phenomena, and the need for developing a strong base in order to end the Israeli occupation and apartheid.
