    Eyewitness Report: The Palestinian Liberation Struggle Continues

    50 Years After Israel’s Six-Day War: The Liberation Struggle Continues

    Featuring: Eyewitness Report & Video from Shatila Refugee Camp in 2017

    On June 5, 1967, Israel launched a sneak attack on Egypt, Syria and Jordan. With superior military power provided by the U.S. and France, Israel quickly achieved victory, conquering the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Gaza, Syria’s Golan Heights and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

    A powerful Palestinian resistance movement rose up to fight the occupation, and the struggle continues today with a mass prisoner hunger strike and countless protest demonstrations inside and outside of Occupied Palestine. On May 14-15, ANSWER organizers joined a Palestinian solidarity conference in Beirut, Lebanon, and a solidarity rally inside the Shatila refugee camp.

    Presenters will discuss the U.S. role in 1967 and today, Israel’s relationship to U.S. Empire, Trump’s recent trip to the Middle East, and the Palestinian struggle for self-determination.
