With DR. MAZIN QUMSIYEH
7:00 PM, TUESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2022 – ON ZOOM – REGISTER HERE
US “freedom” and the creation of the Israeli homeland were both built on the ashes of atrocities known as settler colonialism. Cleveland Peace Action’s settler colonialism series begins with Mazin Qumsiyeh, historian, naturalist, and front-line activist. Professor Qumsiyeh is on the receiving end of settler colonialism in the Occupied West Bank of Palestine and is a leading spokesperson for Palestinian human rights. He will present an historical view, the current situation on the ground in the Occupied West Bank, and how people in the US can turn around the struggle for freedom and self-determination for Palestinians.
Part II of our series on Recognizing Settler Colonialism features Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, February 11, 2022, on her new book, Not A Nation of Immigrants: Settler Colonialism, White Supremacy, and a History of Erasure and Exclusion.
