Video Available: Emergency Forum to Condemn the Israeli Attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla at Revolution Books NYC
On June 1, an overflow crowd packed Revolution Books in New York City for an Emergency Forum to Condemn the Israeli Attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla. The speakers provided a highly informed picture of the situation in Gaza, in Israel, and the real story behind the massacre on the Mari Marmara. And there was serious engagement between different perspectives on the root causes of Israel’s crimes, and the implications for what must be done.
