EMERGENCY TEACH-IN ON JERUSALEM
in your community on
March 12, 1997
The goal of this campaign is to hold teach-ins
on March 12 in 100 U.S. cities in support of efforts in Palestine and Israel
to stop the building of this settlement.
This campaign is in response to
Israel's recent approval of a plan to build Har Homa, a new settlement on
the site of Jabal Abu Ghneim in Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem, to house
more than 30,000 Israeli settlers. The building of this settlement, as all
others, violates international law. However, this one completes the ring
of Jewish settlements around Jerusalem and preempts any possibility of a
negotiated solution to the status of Jerusalem. It constitutes an attempt
by Israel to create facts on the ground to alter the character of the Holy
City, assert exclusive Israeli control over Jerusalem, and crush Palestinian
aspirations to make Arab East Jerusalem the capital of a future Palestinian
