The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine
"The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine"
Thursday, October 25, at 7:30 pm, The Pyle Center, AT&T Lounge, 702 Langdon Street
Please join us to hear the story of Miko Peled's personal journey from his upbringing as the son and grandson of Israeli founders, with a strong belief in the Zionist ideal of a Jewish state, to his work today as an activist for peace who advocates transforming what he calls the Israeli apartheid system into a secular democracy, where Israelis and Palestinians will live as equal citizens.
Co-sponsored by the Carol Chomsky Memorial Fund, American Jews for a Just Peace-Madison, the Madison-Rafah Sister City Project, Playgrounds for Palestine-Madison, Rainbow Bookstore Cooperative, and Students for Justice in Palestine-UW Chapter.
