News: IAW success, Barghouti tour

Hello friends,

first off, thank-you to everyone who came out and supported SPHR and SAIA at this year's Israeli Apartheid Week. The response was truly overwhelming, and we appreciate immensely your support.

On March 22 at Carleton, the righteous folks at CJPME are hosting a special evening with Mustaffa Barghouti, Palestinian Presidential Candidate and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee. You may remember Dr. Barghouti from a well-received appearance on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart late last year. Full event details here.

Facebook event page here.

Dr. Barghouti is truly one of the best hopes for a just peace the Palestinians currently have. This is an event you won't want to miss, and we hope to see you there.

Stay tuned for more news and fab happenings in the coming weeks.

Best wishes for a pleasant spring.
