[Chicago] The Regional and Global Impact of Israel’s War Against the Palestinian People
Monday, October 30, 6:30 pm (Central time)
The growing opposition around the world to Israel’s genocidal assault on in Gaza has shattered the illusion of the U.S., Israel, and their allies in and beyond the Arab world that, after having been politically isolated, confined, and driven to despair, the Palestinian people would gradually disappear or acquiesce to the new “reality” of total Israeli domination. The past two weeks show, as in Poland, Ireland, or South Africa in earlier times, or the history of the Jews themselves, that oppressed peoples who have acquired a clear sense of identity and organization are capable of outlasting their oppressors, even in the face of decades and even centuries of setbacks.
Join us for a discussion of the regional and global impact of Hamas’ October 7 attack on Israel and the Israeli state’s ongoing effort to bomb and starve Gaza into submission.
Opening the discussion:
- Peter Hudis, author of Frantz Fanon, Philosopher of the Barricades
- Ali Reza, Iranian revolutionary activist.
- “The Middle East and the World After October 7, and Israel’s War on Palestine,” by Kevin B. Anderson, in The International Marxist-Humanist
Sponsored by the Chicago chapter of The International Marxist-Humanist Organization
