Absolutely Trevor. If you are in the United States I would recommend looking into the CPUSA | www.cpusa.org

Gaza emergency: Water, electricity and sanitation are urgently necessary to contend with COVID on top of steady deterioration in health and resistance to disease. At the least, the blockade/siege must be broken NOW, by states or sub-state actors. International Union boats? Can any states defy the US-UK-Israel-Egypt nexus?
Michel Saint-Laurent
02:08:40
My name is Michel. The Zionist lobby is surely involved.

Connor Lewis
02:10:49
Hey Molly, great to see you! This is such an important issue for us to combat. We should organize our clubs around exposing the horrific resultants of economic sanctions.
Michel Saint-Laurent
02:10:54
I knew that accusation would come soon. Any critique of Israel always brings that comment.
Julie Watkins
02:11:45
usa & israel both help each other to make too much war; as usa taxpayer i want none of my taxmoney to either for war.
James M Branum
02:11:57
Sorry for the mistyping Michel.So to make it clear, I will restate this. The distinction between Jews and Zionists is important. Many Jews around the world (including in the Israeli state) are opposed to the occupation and mistreatment of the people of Palestine. We need the solidarity of all people in resisting all forms of imperialism.
Molly Nagin
02:12:09
Connor, we are putting a local panel together! where are you located?

Nevertheless, I am always willing to help in whatever way I can.
Michael S Goodman
02:13:27
It's not "our" government, though!
James Deutsch
02:13:28
Michel, to clarify: Israel Lobby. And don't forget the massive Christian Zionist Lobby. Political Evangelicals are destroying the Middle East and the Amazon.

Not just speak up but act up Michel
Philip Linder
02:16:36
Michel, they do. Look up anti-apartheid of Palestine Israeli demonstrations.
Medea Benjamin

We do. Check out Jewish Voice for Peace. But yes, we should be more, and louder

Jill Clark-Gollub
02:17:20
Let's go all out with the campaign to nominate the Cuban doctors for the Peace Prize. Even if they don't get it this time around, we can push for it all year as those doctors keep working, to ensure that they get it next year.
Cindy Domingo
02:17:25
Cuba has sent healthcare teams to over 22 countries and brought the anti-viral Interferon alpha2B - we need to have access to this anti-viral. We need to lift the blockade now so we can have international cooperation in battling this pandemic

For all of us concerned about the right wing Israeli regime’s occupation/colonialist empire agenda with $3.8 billion annual US tax payer funded military aid despite growing opposition (despite AIPAC ’S continued domination of congressional leaders including Democrats). Join Jewish Voice for Peace and its BDS agenda, its vigorous response to the weaponization of anti-Semitism. Read Mondoweiss and Haaretz’ Gideon Levy and Code Pink’s YouTube interview with Levy.

So Palestine, just like all the other countries here, is a target of U.S. imperialism and sanctions. Palestine is not a side note, it's highly relevant to fighting imperialism. The question isn't Jewishness, its Zionism, a colonial settler ideology that works in cooperation with U.S. imperialism.Of course, I understand how this chat can be annoying and disruptive during the session, however. Up at the top of the chat, there is a small "v" symbol at the left. Click on that and then select "Close."

Israel’s Supreme Court has endorsed the Netanyahu/Gantz coalition govt with indicted criminal Netanyahu as prime minister. Too little Israeli Jewish opposition, and so the liberation of Palestine depends on we the people

Of course this discussion isn't detached in any way politically from the US support of genocidal policies that it supports and funds against our Palestinian sisters and brothers and their self-determination.

The recent terror attack on. Venezuela is a result of the US putting a $15 million bounty on Maduro’s head. That is just unconscionable.

US is so Sanctions-crazy that it imposes sanctions internally. POC are dying at a higher rate.

But yet, Medea, Trump claims not to know anything about the attack on Venezuela even though he proposed the idea to many Latin American leaders.
Sally Gellert
