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 Times, The 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.
