Palestine in Lebanon 65 Years Later

From the

by Dana Seidenberg

With fighting in Syria spilling over into Lebanon, Beirut’s Palestinian refugees—and now Palestinians in Syria—are caught in the crossfire of a regional conflict they neither started nor can abate. Israel’s iron-fisted policies of the last century, particularly the forced removal of Palestinians from newly-formed Israel in 1948, turned the whole East Mediterranean region into a combat zone.

Israel's African Refugee Dilemma

From the

by Emma Giloth and Alexandra Mandel

Editors’ note: This piece was originally published in September 2012 in Interaction’s Monthly Developments magazine.

The beaming smile on Sunday Dieng’s face disguises a lifetime of struggle living as a refugee. Yet the scars covering his arms reveal a darker past. When he came to Israel five years ago, Sunday thought he could put these hardships behind him, but he has only faced a new series of crises as he fights for his right to be recognized as a refugee.

Not Another Preventable War!

From the

by SPC Steering Committee

Last month, we solemnly marked the 10 year anniversary of the preventable war with Iraq. Around the world, millions of people protested this war, a war based on lies and fabricated intelligence. An agonizing decade followed. Over 4,000 Americans and 100,000 Iraqis died. The effects of the war continue for Iraqis who lost loved ones, who’ve been displaced by chaos, and who suffer from lack of electricity, clean water and jobs. The effects of the war continue for US soldiers who are injured and suffer from PTSD.

Land Day - 5 Broken Cameras

Sat, Mar 30, 2013 7:00pm
ArtRage Gallery 505 Hawley Ave, Syracuse NY

On March 30, 1976 Arab-Israelis organized in Galilee to protest the Israeli occupation and appropriation of Palestinian land. They were met by Israeli police and, in the ensuing clash, 6 Arab-Israelis were killed. Every year since, Palestinians have commemorated March 30th as Land Day with annual protests on this date. The SPC seeks to support the Palestinian struggle with a commemoration of our own.
