Protest in solidarity with the struggle in Palestine
In the spirit of the season, Palestinians have called for their own “day of rage” to take place this Friday, February 25th. The “day of rage” was what began the Egyptian uprising, as well as the ongoing protests in several other Arab countries.

Democracy, Empire, and the Arab Intifada of 2011
The purpose of this event is to put the Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions in the context of U.S. support for oppressive and undemocratic regimes in the Arab world and connect them to other struggles in the region, particularly around Palestine, where US support for Israeli apartheid has produced several intifadas. The panel will address some of the questions that the revolutions and democracy protests have raised in the US: Islamism, Israel, neoliberalism, and oil. The murder of peaceful protesters in Bahrain, Yemen, and Libya in recent days has shown not only that these regimes will do anything to hold onto power, but also that the US government and one of its few remaining steadfast allies in the region, Saudi Arabia, are complicit in these crimes and must be held accountable. Our hope is that this event will help bring Arabs and our allies together to support the self determination struggles of ALL our Arab sisters and brothers across the Middle East.
