Video: “Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire” w/ PYM and 1804 Books

The Palestinian Youth Movement and 1804 Books present a discussion of the 2nd edition of Richard Becker’s Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire, a must-read book for peace and justice activists in the U.S. An objective assessment that is decidedly partisan, Becker’s text is clearly written, accessible, and extensive in its breadth and depth. Exposing the many misconceptions and lies circulated by politicians and media outlets in the West, Becker’s text traces the history of the Palestinian struggle for liberation from the inception of political Zionism and the fight against British colonialism through the current stage of the national liberation fight initiated with the heroic and inspiring October 7, 2023 uprising against Israeli apartheid.

In this event at The People’s Forum, Becker is joined by other organizers to discuss the newest edition of his book, which has been updated to reflect the rapidly changing political landscape since the Al-Aqsa flood. They pull from and expand on key insights within the book, providing essential knowledge for organizers fighting for Palestine today. This examination also makes one thing abundantly clear: the fight to liberate Palestine is necessary for the fight to liberate us all from the yoke of capitalism.
