Two Right to Education Week Events at Columbia University:
Mock Israeli Checkpoint Action, 11:30am
Columbia University Students for Justice in Palestine (C-SJP) will be constructing a theatrical mock Israeli checkpoint at the Morningside campus on the Low Library steps. This checkpoint will serve as a demonstration of the hardships that Palestinian students face daily while trying to access their schools and homes. This event is part of Right to Education Week (R2E), an international week of action that was called upon from students in Palestine (http://right2edu.birzeit.edu/).
Please come show your support and solidarity.
**There will be a counter demonstration and we need as many volunteers/supporters as possible to make this theatrical mock checkpoint successful! We will ask supporters to line up as Palestinians and we will distribute ID cards. We also ask supporters to come as bystanders so we are not overwhelmed with opposition. We hope you can stand with us tomorrow. Please spread the word!
Un-Euphemizing Palestine, 8:30pm
