Michael's College, Colchester, VT - In the international peace community, the movement to end the Israeli occupa­tion of Palestinian territories through the use of boycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) has been controversial. Our speakers will debate both the fairness and effectiveness of BDS as a method of resolving the conflict. Arguing in favor of the motion: Omar Barghouti, Palestinian researcher, commentator, and human rights activist. He is a founding member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and a leader of the BDS campaign against Israel. Arguing against the motion: Dr. Steven Scheinberg, professor emeritus of History at Concordia College in Montreal and co-chair of Canadian Friends of Peace Now, a Zionist organization that works for peace between Israelis and Palestinians and monitors illegal settlement activity in the West Bank. Moderated by: Bill Wilson, Saint Michaels Emeritus Professor of Political Science. For more information, please contact Laurie Gagne at lgagne@smcvt.edu or 802.654.2205. Sponsored by the Peace and Social Justice Program at St. Michaels College, initiated and co-sponsored by Vermonters for a Just Peace in Palestine/Israel.
