Starting from an analysis linking the neo-imperialism of military occupation and economic neoliberalism, the panelists will discuss U.S. foreign policy as it relates to the economic takeover of Puerto Rico, the occupations of Afghanistan and Palestine, and the military coup and neoliberalization in Honduras, touching on extraction economies, debt crises, drone warfare, land rights and dispossession. Panelists will discuss what kinds of policies to expect in the next four years and what the kinds of challenges and opportunities there will be for activists fighting for freedom and equality in these places and in the U.S.

Toxic Tour of PES Refinery. Hosted by Philly Thrive and Global Grassroots Justice Alliance
Location: 28th st and W Passyunk Ave, Philadelphia
Join a slate of progressive leaders to discuss the power of boycotts and divestment as tools for social justice movements. Leaders from a range of historical and contemporary movements that have used boycott and divestment campaigns to bring about social change will discuss how those movements mobilized people and power through these tactics and the obstacles that they are facing today. Panelists will include leaders in the Palestine solidarity/BDS movement, the anti-Apartheid movement, and the farmworker justice movement. As state legislatures across the country and major party platforms threaten to undermine the constitutionally protected right to use boycotts as a form of political expression, we will hear also from a civil rights lawyer about the struggle to preserve this tactic as a tool for our movements.

The 2016 Democratic National Committee platform includes anti-BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) language but does not include the word occupation in relation to Palestine. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton unconditionally supports Israel and is in the pocket of the Israel lobby AIPAC. Democratic Governor Cuomo of New York has already passed an executive order punishing the BDS movement, and legislators in other states will be following in his footsteps soon.
