Palestine Awareness Week at SLU

Saint Louis University was the site for a weeklong series of presentations entitled “Palestine Awareness Week.” The student group “SLU Solidarity with Palestine” sponsored the event. The term “Solidarity” signifies the SLU group’s affiliation with the “International Solidarity Movement” which disrupts and interferes with the security operations of Israeli military and police units.

The week’s events were presented in collaboration with the Muslim Student Group and the off-campus “Center for Theology and Social Analysis.” I endured three of the five presentations: a film by John Pilger, a lecture by Norman Finkelstein, and a seminar taught by students entitled “Palestine 101.”
