The Socialist Unity Debate
29 August, 2008
Green Left and SOAS Palestinian Society
Anti-Zionism. A Jewish Perspective.
Friday 5th September @ 7pm (Khalili Lecture Theatre SOAS)
Simon Lynn (Editor of Jewish Socialist Magazine)
Tony Greenstein (Palestine Solidarity Campaign)
Chair: Dr Joseph Healy (Co-Convenor Green Left)
Green Party conference runs from next friday to monday. We agreed a couple of months ago that there would be a GL fringe with the Jewish Socialist Group, I am also very pleased to say we have Tony Greenstein. Tony is a member of the Alliance for Green Socialism and it is fair to say the AGS and GL do not always see eye to eye. I think it is important to do common work on the left where as with 90% of things there is clear agreement. Green Left have been strong supporters of an academic boycott of Isreal and have been strong critics of racists and anti-semites.
Our other fringe is at Bolivar Hall with speakers on ‘Greening Latin America’ with Roberto Perez from Cuba.
