April 13: Kobi Snitz on Boycott from Within: Israeli Support for BDS

“Support From Within: Israeli Participation in the Palestinian Struggle  – from demonstrations to BDS, from Matzpen to Anarchists Against the Wall  (AATW) – and the legacy of the Bund”   
 a talk by Kobi Snitz of Boycott from Within and AATW on Sunday, April 13, 7 pm at the Unitarian Church of Vancouver, 949 49th Ave. W. (Oak and 49th).

tadamonkobiKobi will speak about support by Israelis for the Palestinian popular struggle, reviewing a decade of Israeli involvement in the Palestinian popular struggle and half a decade of support for BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) from Inside Israel (despite Israeli legislation making advocates of BDS subject to lawsuits by companies that anticipate possible future financial damage as a result).

As Kobi points out, “These efforts have historical roots which not coincidentally are largely unknown. As it isolates itself from a world increasingly critical of its destruction of Palestinian society, Israel also isolates itself from significant parts of Jewish history. ”

Donations will be accepted to help fund nonviolent activism in Beit Ummar, one of the villages where Kobi regularly participates in demonstrations.

Kobi’s talk is sponsored by: Independent Jewish Voices–Vancouver (www.ijvcanada.org ) and the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Church of Vancouver.
