soldier and refuse

Justine ‘Juniper’ Mitchell ’15 invites you to confront settler colonialism and get down tomorrow afternoon:

Eran and Maya, two Jewish Israeli citizens from Anarchists Against the Wall and Boycott from Within will be at Wesleyan this Tuesday to discuss their direct action tactics and activism in in the West Bank as well as their efforts to educate the Israeli public about the occupation.

Growing up in Jerusalem, both Eran and Maya became critical of the occupation and injustices against Palestinian people. After serving in the IDF Eran joined Breaking the Silence and published testimonies from IDF soldiers. His investigative reports have appeared in The New York TimesThe Washington Post, and The Guardian.

Maya on the other hand refused to serve in the IDF and was thus sentenced to military prison and detention. After her release she co-led the feminist alternative education program New Profile, guided political tours in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, and worked with Rabbis for Human Rights.

Beekeepers Meeting

From Tyler Rioff ’14:

Always wanted to learn more about the beautiful and fascinating creatures that support our entire ecosystem? Interested in someday helping to take care of Wesleyan’s very own bees?
You may not be aware that Long Lane now has two hives being prepared for the coming winter. We hope you’ll join us for the first meeting of the Wesleyan Beekeepers to discuss very generally the future directions of this group. Bring your ideas, hopes, and dreams for creating a buzzing bee culture on campus for years to come.
Once we’ve done some talking and aptly themed snacking, we’ll be showing the acclaimed documentary film Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? Hope to see you soon.
