Palestine Solidarity Movement Conference
Friday, November 7th 2003  
Columbus, OH


The Palestine Solidarity Movement (PSM), a national coalition of Palestinian advocacy organizations, currently engaged in a nationwide campaign that encourages divestiture from Israel announces the Third National Solidarity Conference at Ohio State University November 7, 8, & 9, 2003.

The Third Annual Conference is an activist/workshop-oriented event that will focus primarily on organizing and building effective strategies to launch and put momentum behind already existing divestment campaigns on various campuses. Participants will share and establish tactics to pressure their university administrations to withdraw investments from companies that deal with the Israeli government and army; primarily those who are involved in direct violations of human rights such are Caterpillar and Lockheed-Martin.

The Palestine Solidarity Movement is an umbrella-network of diverse activist organizations that support divestment from the state of Israel, the Palestinian right of return, full equality under the law, the end of the occupation and US government aid to Israel, and stands against racism and all forms of oppression.
