The struggle for Palestinian liberation has been in the news lately with two significant developments. The first is the death of Ariel Sharon, the war criminal who led bloody campaign after bloody campaign against the Palestinian people. The second is the vote by the American Studies Association to boycott Israeli academic institutions and the confidence building in the BDS movement. In both cases, the voices of empire have rushed in to twist developments for their own ends, praising Sharon as a peacemaker and vilifying the BDS movement. They're wrong on both counts. Join the Boston ISO as we take on the history of Israel as a colonial settler state founded and funded by imperialism and the struggle for Palestinian liberation.
