Panel Discussion: NYU-Tel Aviv University: A Partnership in Occupation


A panel discussion featuring:

Nir Harel, Anarchists Against The Wall


TUESDAY MARCH 3, 2009
7PM
NYU KIMMEL CENTER, ROOM 802
60 WASHINGTON SQUARE SOUTH

In the wake of Israels devastating war on Gaza, NYUs recently established study abroad program at Tel Aviv University looks more dubious than ever. Tel Aviv University has long played a vital part in the occupation and colonization of Palestinian lands, and proudly trumpets its support for the Israeli military
and its role in designing new weapons systems with which Israel wages war on the Palestinians. Despite these criminal activities, NYU has partnered with Tel Aviv University, thereby tying itself more directly to the occupation of Palestine and the oppression of the Palestinians than ever before.

NYUs expansion to Tel Aviv is not an isolated event, but part of a larger vision of becoming a "global university." This corporatized vision entails the expansion of the university at the expense of populations variously deprived of elementary human, labor, economic, and social rights, be they Palestinians
under occupation, workers at NYUs branch campus in Abu Dhabi, or workers at its home campus in the heart of New York City. It is a vision which, by its partnership in occupation, oppression, and autocracy, repudiates the mission of higher education to serve humanity.

This event is occurring in conjunction with NYCs Israeli Apartheid Week. For more information on Israeli Apartheid Week and a complete schedule of events please visit www.apartheidweek.org
