Presentation: Saffo Papantonopoulou “Queer Liberation and Palestinian Liberation: An Introduction”
What is Israeli apartheid? What is Zionism? What does Queer liberation have to do with Palestine? What can I do about it? Palestine is a Queer issue, and Queer Palestinians have spoken out that the most important thing outsiders can do to support Queer organizing in Palestine is to work to end the occupation. Join us for an interactive workshop where we will discuss some of the history and politics of Palestine and Israeli settler colonialism, and what folks in New York can do to support both Queer and Palestinian struggles. Student, writer, and revolutionary Saffo Papantonopoulou comes to Bluestockings tonight to discuss these issues and create a welcome and open space for those who have little or no prior knowledge about the subject.
