A Home Denied: Struggling Against Displacement from Chicago to Palestine
When: Wednesday, January 23, 2013, 6:30pm
Where: Grace Place, 637 S. Dearborn St, Chicago, IL 60605
Both here and abroad, racist and militarized institutions threaten to uproot oppressed peoples from their communities. The housing justice movement in Chicago is connected to the Palestinian struggle against displacement and home demolitions. Listen to the stories of people who have been forced from their homes, denied entry into their homeland, and resisted by occupying vacant homes and rebuilding after demolition. Join us as we learn from each other’s movements and gain strength in our common struggles for justice and liberation.
