Susya is a Palestinian village in the South Hebron Hills of the West Bank that is currently under threat of demolition in order to expand the Israeli settlement next door. Join J Street U to learn how you can take action in your communities and stop the demolition of Susya!

This event will discuss the relationship between Israel, Palestine, and the settlement enterprise and their connection to Susya. This is a great opportunity to gain a nuanced insight on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. All voices, backgrounds, and perspectives are welcome and encouraged.

Real Talk: Expulsion, Occupation, and Demolition

Fromsjpevent  Henry Prine ’18:

Meet Palestinians from Susiya and Umm al-Khair, West Bank. Join Fatma,
Hamoudi, Aysar, Eid, Nima, and Sadin for a conversation about their
lives in Palestine. They are not academics. They are living in
undocumented villages in the South Hebron Hills. These villages are
located in Area C, the part of the West Bank under full Israeli
control since 1993.

Expelled from their original land, Susiya, in 1986, these Palestinians
have been under constant threat of demolition by the state of Israel.
People stay up every night in case Caterpillar bulldozers ride up
accompanied by soldiers. Come listen to their stories, and join the
conversation that even a US Senator has. They are excited to meet you.

There will be food served. Thai food. Facebook event:
