September 25 (Tuesday): East End Artist Presents "Facing The Wall" in Brooklyn at 7pm

The separation wall, Israel's illegal 400-mile, 25-foot-high barrier in the occupied Palestinian territories, has created an outpouring of resistance art. Join us for a multimedia presentation by artist and psychologist Hazel Kahan, Ph.D., to:

*learn about the policies and psychology that created the separation wall;
*analyze what it means to be on the right or wrong side of the wall;
*see the art that has grown up on the wall and about the wall.

The presentation will include audio from Dr. Kahan's interview with a resident of Batir, where the people were waiting for the wall to enclose their village.

October 4 (Thursday): Jeff Halper of Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions Speaks in Bridgehampton at 7pm

Dr. Halper will outline the nature of the present occupation which Israel intends to be permanent, explaining how a "Matrix of Control" is used to isolate Palestinians from their land, from each other and from Israelis.

Halper promises also to talk "about where we are at this moment, teetering on the edge of apartheid" and why he believes "that a two-state solution permitting a truly sovereign and
VIABLE Palestinian state has been eliminated by Israel's settlement enterprise"

He will put forward a positive solution and invite discussion from the audience.
