Palestine Awareness Week to be observed with three talks

Tickets required for Noam Chomsky's talk Nov. 17

The organization Brandeis Students for Justice in Palestine has planned three events for Palestine Awareness Week.

A discussion of “Who Profits From Israeli Occupation,” led by Dalit Baum, Ph.D., co-founder of an activist research initiative of the Coalition of Women for Peace in Israel, will be held Tuesday, Nov. 15, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Levin-Ross Room of the Hassenfeld Conference Center. It will cover economic interests in Israel and how they can be influenced. The talk will be co-sponsored by Global Exchange.

“Second Class Citizens: Israel and the Palestinian Minority,” will be held Wednesday, Nov. 16, from 7 to 9 p.m. in Shiffman 215. Led by Nimer Sultan, a doctoral student at Harvard University working on contemporary political and constitutional theory, the talk will examine the situation of Palestinians citizens of Israel.

Lastly, “U.S., Israel and Palestine Within the Changing Political Climate,” will be held Thursday, Nov. 17, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Sherman Function Hall. Political theorist and MIT linguistics professor Noam Chomsky will discuss changes that have taken place in the United States, Israel and the Palestinian territories since he spoke on campus last year.

The events Tuesday and Wednesday are open to the public. Due to space constraints, Chomsky’s talk on Thursday will be limited to Brandeis students; tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at Brandeis Tickets. There is no charge for any of the events.
