The burial sites continue to expose ruthless war crimes by the invaders, Contact Max at mobuszewski2001 at Comcast dot net or 410-323-1607.

28] – CODEPINK [] is hosting a webinar Censored?! ¡Viva Palestina! on Tues., Nov. 7 at 8 PM ET.  Join CODEPINK Congress and uplift the voices of Palestinian resistance and expose those who seek to censor them. While the Israel lobby–AIPAC, the ADL, Democratic Majority for Israel– has long campaigned to vilify advocates for Palestinian human rights, attempts to censor, punish and cancel pro-Palestinian voices has taken on a new chilling dimension.

Since October 7th, Germany and France have issued orders prohibiting pro-Palestinian protests, US corporate media have fired reporters, and universities have sent professors packing and denounced college students demanding an end to Israel’s collective punishment in Gaza. In the Middle East and North America, mental health clinicians are also being targeted for challenging the Israeli occupation and genocide–with Palestinian clinicians in Israel prohibited from using “Palestinian” in their organization’s names and communications.

Hear the other side with Dr. Osama Abuirshaid, executive director and board member of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP); Lara Sheehi, PsyD, an assistant professor of Clinical Psychology at the George Washington University’s Professional Psychology Program where she is the founding faculty director of the Psychoanalysis and the Arab World Lab; Soetkin Van Muylem works for Vrede, a Belgian peace organization in support of the Palestinian struggle for liberation and the campaign to boycott, divest and sanction Israel; and Zahra Billoo who serves as the Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.  RSVP at
