Join the Democratic Socialists of America BDS and Palestine Solidarity Working Group' on NOVEMBER 13th at 10:30 AM PT / 1:30 PM ET / 8:30PM Pales-time for an engaging & unique panel discussion and Q&A on the intersections of the world’s most popular sport and the struggle for Palestinian rights and self-determination. Panelists will discuss the effect of the occupation on soccer/football in Palestine, as well as BDS organizing efforts toward pressuring teams to divest from international sporting companies operating in the West Bank. We hope everyone comes out of this event with a greater understanding of the Palestinian struggle through the lens of sport and with strategies to aid BDS efforts in the realm of soccer.
