This is the second episode of the Solidarity Sessions. Learn from Palestinians about the call to pressure our governments and institutions to stop arming Israel! Hear from two Palestinian experts and activists Dr. Shahd Hammouri, lecturer in Law and expert in International Law and War Economies, and Saleh Hijazi, Apartheid-free policy coordinator for the Palestinian BDS National Committee. They’ll be speaking about the types of weapons being used by Israel in its assault on Palestinians (many of which are made in the UK) and why Palestinian civil society has called on the solidarity movement to work for a full military embargo through campaigns to stop arming Israel.

32] -- Join the Baltimore Nonviolence Center on Tues., Jan. 23 from 4:30 to 5 PM ET at 33rd and N. Charles Sts. The invasion of Ukraine has the potential to become a war extending throughout Europe.  Putin has destroyed Aleppo and Grozny and has threatened the use of nuclear weapons.  Russian soldiers were sent into the area around the contaminated and still radioactive Chernobyl nuclear plant. Now they are stationed in the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, the largest in Europe.   People who believe in peace and justice should come forward and take the risks of peace. The burial sites continue to expose ruthless war crimes by the invaders, Contact Max at mobuszewski2001 at Comcast dot net or 410-323-1607.
