Students for Justice in Palestine 8th Annual Palestine Awarness Week- UC Davis

Students for Justice in Palestine invites you to join us in our 8th Annual Palestine Awareness Week at UC Davis.

We are dedicating this week to the remembrance and recognition of those Palestinians that have been murdered, oppressed, made to be refugees and ethnically cleansed by Israeli Occupation in the last 60 years.

    New Year’s greetings to UC Davis SJP! Please watch & share WHY 9/11?, a powerful new video featuring Prof. Dan A. McGowan, Exec. Director of Deir Yassin Remembered. It’s about the enormous impact America’s pro-Israel bias has had, not only on the Palestinians, but also on America. Here’s the link: http://vimeo.com/15528714 .
