Non-Violent Resistance: Success for Peace in the Holy Land

Description:

The populist upraising in the world, notably in the Holy Land and the US, should link forces. The grim racist, ethnic cleansing ideologies that have gripped the Holy Land for years has now gripped much of the US political dialogue. The focus of this panel is to encourage activists to come together and organize more non-violent resistance events, including street demonstrations to push the envelope for peace in Israel and Palestine. This is in view of recent successes of non-violent activists in the Holy Land, notably at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinian hunger strike, etc.
