J-BIG Conference March 2 – Palestine Solidarity and Jewish Opposition to Zionism

J-Big Banner 600SATURDAY MARCH 2

1 – 7 PM

VENUE -     24 Greencoat Place,     London SW1P 1RD  (Near Victoria station)

This is a half-day conference offering  everyone working for Palestinian rights a chance to reinforce their knowledge of Zionism, its rejection of Jewish radical traditions, its conflation of antisemitism with criticism of Israel and its attempts to undermine Palestinian solidarity work – in particular the movement for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS).

Proceedings will start with BUNDA’IM, a short film introducing the last comrades of the Bund mass movement. Exterminated in Europe and ignored in Israel, its ideas live on.

Discussions will be lead by speakers including:

Sue Blackwell – British Committee for the Universities of Palestine (BRICUP)

Michael Deas – Palestinian BDS National Committee coordinator in Europe

Antony Lerman – author of The Making and Unmaking of a Zionist

John Rose – author of The Myths of Zionism

David Rosenberg – Editorial Committee, Jewish Socialist magazine

Followed by entertainment from Deborah Fink (“The Diva with a Difference”), Leon Rosselson and others.
