A Talk by MK Aida Touma-Sliman

"From an isolated political minority to a strong political force: the joint list in Israeli politics"

MK Touma-Sliman will discuss the state of Israeli politics ahead of the March elections and the role of the joint list in promotion of the Palestinian community within Israel, the struggle against the occupation, as well as presenting a coherent alternative to the right-wing trends in Israel. She will discuss the terrible repercussions of the deep alliance between Netanyahu and Trump - from the escalation with Iran to the "deal of the century" aimed at destroying the prospect of a Palestinian state. In light of these threats -progressive forces in both Israel and the US must work together to develop new ways of combating racism and the occupation.

Nadia Abu El-Haj (Co-Director, Center for Palestine Studies) will moderate the event.
