Cobo Hall: D3-27
Full Description: 

This PMA is an opportunity for anti-Zionist Jewish organizers to develop resolutions for our politics, practice, and strategies in the U.S. The goal is to build clarity and shared direction for our strategic role in Palestine Solidarity Work and other anti-imperialist global justice struggles.

Through small group discussions, some of the themes to be discussed include:

Anti-Zionist Jewish organizing in support of grassroots Palestinian organizing in the United States and the Palestinian struggle for self-determination: Anti-Zionist Jewish organizing is part of the broader movement in solidarity with the Palestinian grassroots movement for self-determination. In addition to our own challenge to Zionism on the grounds of its historical and current betrayal of diverse Jewish people’s safety and ethical and political traditions, we confront Zionism for its devastating racism, colonialism, resource exploitation and consequent social and environmental destruction in the region.

Confronting Zionism as part of Internationalism and Global Justice:. This theme explores anti-Zionist Jewish organizing as part of broader movements for environmental justice, the rights of refugees, indigenous people and immigrants, prisoner solidarity, and against militarism, capitalism and war.
