Student groups (Smith included!) organize nationally for Palestine

Smith College recently joined over 100 American universities at the first National Students for Justice in Palestine conference at Columbia University. At the closing session on October 16th, 2011, students voted to endorse the following points of unity: 

  1. Ending Israel’s occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantling the Wall;
  2. Recognizing the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and
  3. Respecting, protecting, promoting the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.

The conference was a tremendous opportunity for members of the Alliance to continue to educate ourselves about Palestinian issues, as well as to network and to brainstorm programs and campaigns for the year to come. We’re looking forward to bringing what we learned in New York back to campus - and will be talking about how we’ll do that during our meeting on the 22nd, if you’re interested!
