FREE THE LAND: PALESTINE BEYOND THE DEAL OF THE CENTURY

To this day, the Palestinian people continue the struggle to liberate their land and their people from the US-backed Israel occupation and violence. During the past year, as the world confronted the acceleration of global crisis and pandemic, the Zionist occupation has intensified systemic colonial violence and attacks on all forms of resistance. Palestinians not only confront Covid-19, but also confront the inhumane deprivation of the basic necessities for health and life, the acceleration of land dispossession, home destructions, and violent attacks, and the ongoing illegal detentions of hundreds of political prisoners.

As we near the 73rd year of the Nakba, join us to discuss the current context of the US-backed Zionist occupation of Palestine and imperialist interventions in the region. What are the economic, political, and social consequences of Zionist imperialism on the people of Palestine, the Middle East and North African region, and the world? What is the state of struggle for a liberated Palestine? What is the task of the working class movements in internationalist solidarity with the Palestinian people?
