Forum on Palestine - Tonight!!

Please come tonight to a forum on Palestine - the first in a series.
Palestine Action Group (a joint activity of Americans United for
Palestinian Human Rights, Jews for Global Justice, and Portland Peaceful
Response Coalition) will present the first in a series of forums on Palestine,
6:00p Saturday 27 April 2002, Shattuck Hall room 212, Portland State
University.

Media Coverage of the Palestinian/Israeli Conflict will be presented by
Ahmed Amr of NileMedia.com. Mr Amr has written hundreds of articles
on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and has been an outspoken advocate of a two-state solution for over twenty years. As the publisher of
NileMedia.com, he minces no words in taking on the mass media
monopolies and coverage of the Middle East: "Our mission is to elevate the debate about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict to a level that can withstand the light of day."

Eyewitness to Conflict will be presented by Tom Nelson of Americans
United for Palestinian Human Rights. Mr Nelson recently returned from
Palestine as part of the International Solidarity Movement's Third
Campaign to End the Occupation, which ran from March 29 to April 12,
and was witness to the start of the latest Israeli military action in Palestine.

The forum will be followed by a candlelight procession at 8:00p along the
park blocks from PSU to Pioneer Courthouse Square.

The next forum will be 6:00p Saturday 4 May 2002.

For more information, please call David Zundel 503 544 5766 or
