From Campus to the Middle East
US, Berkeley
Last year, a group of UC Berkeley students and faculty members organized a teach-in about Israel's war on Lebanon. Attended by hundreds of students, faculty, and community members, the event was an opportunity to challenge assumptions and consensuses. The teach-in on December 6 is a follow-up event to last year's, stemming from our concern about the direction of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and increasing campaigns against critics on U.S. campuses.

The teach-in focuses on the continuing occupations of Iraq and Palestine, on the threats of American wars against Syria and Iran, and on the intimidation crusades of lobbies and pressure groups against members of the academic community who have voiced criticism. We think these issues are linked and need to be publicly debated. Our teach-in features four experts who will provide informed and critical perspectives.

Organized by a UC Berkeley Faculty and Students Collective: Berkeley Teach-In Against America’s Wars.
