In Solidarity: From Ferguson to Mexico to Palestine

Thursday, November 19
7 pm
Sterling Hall 1310
Cost: Free
“WHEN I SEE THEM I SEE US”. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xsdpg-9cmSw) That was the title of the recent video released by Black and Palestinian activists bringing light to the similar challenges both communities face. It doesn't end there. Join us as we continue building more bridges by highlighting the struggle not only between the Palestinian and Black community but the Mexican community as well. In this event we will have three speakers help us see the great intersectionalities between the different struggles.

Ahmed Hamad is a Palestinian activist from Gaza who will be speaking on his personal experiences in occupied Gaza and how living under such oppressive conditions effects the Palestinian people. 

Todd St Hill is an organizer with We Charge Genocide’s Cop Watch program, which trains and promotes on-the-ground recording of police activity. St. Hill came to Chicago from Washington, D.C. and will be drawing parallels between police violence in the two cities. 

Kathy Villalon is a Ph.D. student here at UW-Madison in Education. She will be speaking on the injustices in Mexico, Ayotzinapa, the US/Mexico border, and Femicidios.

Join us on November 19th at 7pm in Sterling Hall 1310 to hear these three speakers help us see the great intersectionalities between the different struggles.
