Room: 227

It’s time for progressives to have a serious discussion about how Israel has become an apartheid state. For nearly 50 years, the Palestinian people have lived under a military occupation by a foreign government that limits their freedom of movement and equal access to water, forces the usage of segregated roads and buses, and allows for the murder of tens of thousands of Palestinians in what the U.S. State Department has described in its Country Reports on Human Rights Practices as “institutional and societal discrimination against Arab citizens, in particular in access to equal education and employment opportunities; societal discrimination and domestic violence against women.”
