Catch the latest as Professor Qumsiyeh reports the latest from Europe.
(BETHLEHEM) - People around Europe are mobilizing in the hundreds for the Trip to Palestine in July (July 8-16, see http://www.palestinejn.org). I gave talks in filled rooms in Southampton and Paris. I am now in London and then onto the USA to give talks on popular resistance and to recruit more people for this trip.
For a schedule of my talks, see http://www.qumsiyeh.org/
In Southampton UK, British citizens of various backgrounds (including those who come from Israeli Jewish and Palestinian Christian and Muslim backgrounds) are successfully putting events that inspire, recruit, and mobilize (see http://www.pscsoton.org.uk/ ).
In France, activists are successfully challenging the second strongest Zionist lobby in the world (the strongest being in the US) and winning public opinion over even as racist Zionists lie, cheat, and mobilize even the French justice system tto try desperately to prevent the truth from being told (see http://europalestine.com/).
ACTION for those in Palestine: Tomorrow/Friday; Planting Olive trees in Al-Walaja in the morning and then a demonstration and march in the same village after Friday Prayers (start right after noon).
