Yonatan Shapira: from Israeli Air Force Officer to Solidarity Activist
Nov 02, 2015 at 07:38 PM
Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, 1961 East Mall, UBC, Vancouver
Nov 3, 6:30 pm, Admission by donation

A talk by a former Israeli air force officer who denounced as war crimes the "targeted assassinations" carried out by Israel in the densely-populated Gaza Strip. A co-founder of Combatants for Peace and member of Boycott from Within (Israelis supporting the Palestinian campaign of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions), Yonatan sailed on three boats carrying humanitarian aid, challenging the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip.

The talk is hosted by the Progressive Jewish Alliance at UBC, a new organization that strives to open up the campus discourse on Palestine and Israel. Additional co-sponsoring groups are Canadian Boat to Gaza, Canadian Memorial United Church, Independent Jewish Voices-Vancouver, Kairos-Metro Vancouver, the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Church of Vancouver, and the Vancouver Monthly Meeting of the Society of Friends (Quakers).
