NATIONAL EMERGENCY MOBILIZATION ON PALESTINE
May 13 and 14, 2002
Hosted by the Arab American Institute & the American-Arab
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.
