CORVALLIS, Oregon - In response to the escalating violence in Palestine and Israel, a diverse group of community members and university students held a vigil and speakout on Wednesday, April 17, in the central quad of Oregon State University. Organizers and participants called for an end to the illegal occupation of Palestinian territory by Israeli forces.
The Palestinian people have no grudge against the American public. We never did. As a matter of fact, if one resists the media spin and takes a closer look at what the Palestinians have been struggling for during the last two weeks--let alone the last thirty-five years--it will be revealed that the Palestinian Intifada is a very American struggle. After all, it is a struggle for national independence, civil liberties, human rights, as well as a struggle to establish an open market in an independent economy, free to market forces and free from Israeli domination.
