Discussion meeting: How can we best support the Palestinians?

I don't routinely post details of AWL events here, but given how much discussion there has been on the Israel/Gaza issue, and the rather spooky amount of blogging on the AWL-CPGB ding-dong about Iran a couple of months back, I thought I'd make an exception for this important one ...

London AWL/Worker-Communist Party of Iraq (UK) forum: How can we best support the Palestinians?

Thursday 15 January 2009

19:00 (note, earlier than our usual meeting time of 19:30)

At: the Social Centre, 39 Clarges Mews, London W1J 5BY (near Green Park Tube)

A public meeting sponsored by Workers’ Liberty and the Worker-communist Party of Iraq (UK).

We are mobilising to oppose Israel’s brutal war in Gaza. But on what political basis?
• What is our attitude to Hamas, and to political Islam more generally? 
• Should we advocate an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel?
• What about boycotts of Israel?
• What is our attitude to the anti-war and workers’ movements inside Israel?

Speakers: Robin Sivapalan (Workers’ Liberty); Muayad Ahmed  (Worker-communist Party of Iraq); activist from a London Palestine solidarity network.
