Norman Finkelstein Workshop:
How you can help the Palestinian cause
“What they did last night was more important than 10,000 peace conferences – they just blew up the wall!” – Norman Finkelstein
28 January 2008
Norman Finkelstein was invited to Birkbeck College, University of London, on 23th January by FOSIS (Federation of Student Islamic Societies) as part of his UK Speaking Tour. His talk departed from the advertised title of “Today’s Palestine: The Product of Zionism” to a more interesting title “How UK Residents can help the Palestinian cause” and was conducted in the form of a workshop. The programme lasted two and a half hours and was split in to two segments – the initial remarks and question-answer session(1h) followed by the workshop(1h30m). Courtesy of Indymedia the mp3 audio of both sections are provided below (recorded by activists from the group which successfully hoisted the Palestinian flag over the Israeli state-owned produce importer Agrexco Carmel in Hayes).
Norman Finkelstein is perhaps best known for his seminal work on the “Holocaust Industry” (how Israel has callously used the genocide of the Jews in furthering its zionist cause)…
