Next Friday & Saturday: Israeli activist Jeff Halper speaks in Edmonton
PSN is excited to be a co-sponsor for the Edmonton stop of the cross-Canada tour of Israeli anti-occupation activist Jeff Halper, the Coordinator of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD)
. You'll have two opportunities to see Jeff speak in Edmonton (details below). Both events are free, but we will be accepting donations, with all proceeds going to ICAHD projects to help rebuild demolished Palestinian homes. If you can't make it but want to donate to these projects, please contact PSN

No Home, No Homeland:
Friday, February 6 (7:00–9:00 pm)
Edmonton Clinic Health Academy (ECHA) Room 1-182
South Corner of 87 Ave & 114 St, U of A Campus
Israel’s Policy of Demolishing Palestinian Homes
(Click here for map
Jeff will take the audience through an Israeli demolition of a Palestinian home and place Israel’s policy of demolishing Palestinian homes (48,000 since 1967) within Israel’s wider matrix of control — its political structure of permanent occupation — and will discuss how this policy impacts the possibility of a just peace in Palestine-Israel.

Where Are We Headed in Israel-Palestine? Apartheid Warehousing or a Just Solution?
Saturday, February 7 (7:00–9:00 pm)
Southminster-Steinhauer United Church (10740-19 Ave)
(Click here for map)
Jeff will analyze the political situation in Palestine-Israel through maps and visuals, then raise the fundamental question: where do we go from here? He will discuss the various options for resolving the conflict: two states (which he argues is no longer a viable option), one state (bi-national or democratic), or a regional confederation. The alternative to these options is an Israeli-imposed apartheid and/or the permanent warehousing of the Palestinian population. For full details, visit our website or the Facebook event page.
