National Emergency Mobilization On Palestine



May 13 and 14, 2002
Hosted by the Arab American Institute & the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee

In the next few weeks it is imperative for U.S. citizens concerned about the current situation in Palestine to join together. We must speak out against congressional bills and letters that are aimed at undermining U.S. relations with the Palestinian leadership and Arab countries and support legislation that advocates a balanced approach to the crisis. We also must encourage the U.S. government to support humanitarian efforts in Palestine. Speakers include: Nabil Shaath, Palestinian Authority Minister of Planning and International Cooperation, Michael Tarazi and Diana Buttu, legal advisors, Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) Negotiations Affairs Department, Adam Shapiro, the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), John Zogby, Zogby International, among others.
