Amir Khadir to speak on BDS Thursday, March 24



CJPME welcomes MNA Amir Khadir for a conference on the boycott of Israeli products

CJPME is pleased to host a lecture with MNA Amir Khadir on the boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign (BDS) against the Israeli occupation on Thursday, March 24th. The conference is being hosted in partnership with the Coalition for Justice in Palestine of UQAM (CJP-UQAM).
Please join us to hear Mr. Khadir discussing how BDS directed at Israel is necessary for a just resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict, and how to overcome the obstacles to its implementation in Quebec, in a lecture entitled:
Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: the right to say no to the Israeli occupation
Thursday, March 24, 7:30 p.m.
Room N-M510, Building Paul-Gérin-Lajoie
1205 St-Denis St., Montreal

Space is limited - Please reserve your seat early at 438-380-5410
Please note that after the start of the event, seats will be assigned to non-registered participants
Mr. Khadir's lecture will be in French, and will be followed by a period of Q&A, where questions in both English and French will be entertained.
President and spokesperson for Québec solidaire with Françoise David, Amir Khadir was elected to the National Assembly of Quebec in the riding of Mercier in the 2008 elections. A medical specialist, he has been active for many years in community-based work and international solidarity.
Because of his recent support for a boycott campaign against a Montreal shoe store carrying Israeli shoes, Mr. Khadir has been vigorously attacked by opponents of the boycott of Israel. Québec solidaire supports the BDS campaign and advocates a boycott of Israeli products, and public and commercial awareness.
