PALESTINE STUDY GROUP:
DEADLY EXCHANGE TEACH-IN

Maynard Avenue United Methodist Church
2350 Indianola Ave Columbus 43202

Dr. Amy Shuster will present a teach in on the Jewish Voice for Peace Deadly Exchange Campaign. This campaign exposes the deadly falsehood that violence against some communities will create security for others and is perpetuated by the policies of both the U.S. and Israeli government. One of the most dangerous places where the regimes of Trump and Netanyahu converge are in exchange programs that bring together police, ICE, border patrol, and FBI from the US with soldiers, police, border agents, etc from Israel. In these programs, “worst practices” are shared to promote and extend discriminatory and repressive policing in both countries including extrajudicial executions, shoot-to-kill policies, police murders, racial profiling, spying and surveillance, deportation and detention, and attacks on human rights defenders. After the presentation, Dr. Shuster will lead a discussion on how we can achieve real security in our community. Light refreshments provided. Details and updates available HERE.

The revolution here is from hierarchical to lateral power. That's the power shift. So increasingly a younger generation that's grown up on the internet and now increasingly distributing renewable energies, they're measuring politics in terms of a struggle between centralized, hierarchical, top-down and closed and proprietary, versus distributed, open, collaborative, transparent. This shift, from hierarchical to lateral power, is going to change the way we live, the way we educate our children, and the way we govern the world. ~ Jeremy Rifkin
