Book talk on “Palestine, Israel and the U.S. Empire” with Richard Becker

Wednesday, May 29
6:00 – 8:00 pm

Indianapolis Liberation Center

Join PSL Indianapolis at the Indianapolis Liberation Center to discuss the latest edition of Palestine, Israel, and the U.S. Empire with author and organizer Richard Becker. It is unfortunate that our friends at Ujamaa Community Bookstore had to pull out at the last minute, but we still cherish our longstanding relationship with Ujamaa and Flanner Farms. Fortunately, however, the people of Indy have their own liberated community center for precisely such occassions!

Taking a firm anti-Zionist perspective on the history of Palestine and Israel, this book traces the movements of resistance from British colonialism to the fight back in Gaza and the West Bank today. From the division of the Middle East by Western powers and the Zionist settler movement, to the founding of Israel and its role as a watchdog for US interests, to present day conflicts and the prospects for a just resolution—this narrative is firmly rooted in the politics of Palestinian liberation.

Originally published in 2009, Palestine, Israel, and U.S. Empire is presented here in its newest edition, released following the events of October 7, 2023. Updated to reflect the rapidly changing political landscape of the struggle for Palestinian liberation since the Al-Aqsa Flood, this book is a key tool for organizers taking the streets for Palestine today. This text and discussion are opportunities to deepen your understanding of why fighting for Palestine is not only a fight for our shared humanity, but absolutely necessary for our own fight for liberation here in the United States.

You can purchase the book for delivery or pickup at the new Liberation Center Store or grab one tonight while they last!
