First Event of the Semester!! - Faces of Occupation

Radical Rush Week: Faces of Occupation

Looking at the Human Impact of the Conflicts in Israel/Palestine, Afghanistan, and Iraq


Wednesday, September 23, 2009

7:00pm - 9:00pm

Jimenez 0105


How many Palestinian civilians were killed in the recent Israeli offensive, Operation Cast Lead, against Gaza in January?

How many Iraqi civilians have been killed since the Iraq War started in 2003?

What types of roles, if any, does civilian suffering and humanitarian suffering play in these types of conflicts?

Is this imperialism? Is this colonialism?

Come out for an event with Students for Justice in Palestine and Students for a Democratic Society that will look at how civilian populations, especially women and children, suffer the greatest from these brutal conflicts. Ongoing offensives in countries like Israel, Palestine, Afghanistan, and Iraq will be presented and discussed as a group.

It's going to be an interesting presentation and discussion!!
