The Palestine-Israel Justice Project invites people to a presentation by Jeff Halper, an Israeli anthropologist, founder of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, and the coordinator of the War Against the People project of The People Yes! Network.
Since 1967 some 48,000 homes have been demolished in the occupied territory of Palestine. Halper was at the forefront of protesting those actions. He argues that the matrix of control which Israel has laid over the occupied territory has effectively eliminated the two-state solution to the conflict and rendered Israeli control of the entire country irreversible. Faced with apartheid and the warehousing of the Palestinians, he goes on to outline what appears to be the only just solution remaining: a democratic, bi-national state, which he explores in depth.
