I will be doing a series of speaking events starting on the 16th of October in New York City on behalf of the Anarchists Against the Wall and the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee.Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW) is a direct action group that was established in 2003 to resist the construction of the wall Israel is building on Palestinian land in the Occupied West Bank. The group works in cooperation with Palestinians in a joint popular struggle against the occupation. Since its formation, the group has participated in thousands of demonstrations and direct actions against the wall specifically, and the occupation generally, all over the West Bank. This speaking and fund raising tour is meant to inform communities, activists, students and the wider public about the current situation in Israel/Palestine and raise funds to cover AATW’s legal expenses which grow thanks to relentless state repression.

The speaking engagements may include a photo exhibition provided by Active Stills, the screening a small film about the anarchists, discussion of my personal story of immigrating to Israel and becoming a supporter of the Palestinian popular struggle or all of the above. I am also able to discuss my work and give a lecture on the current situation in the West Bank. If you are interested in hosting an event with me between 16 October 2010 and 1 December 2010 in the Northeast coast of the United States, please contact me through the contact page on this website or visit the tour’s official site here. I will update this page with event listings as they become final:
