THE CONFERENCE WILL GO ON!
The Conference will go on as scheduled in New Brunswick, NJ! We will carry on our struggle with Rutgers, but rest assured, the conference will happen and will establish forever, at Rutgers University and beyond, that Palestine and the Palestine solidarity movement will not be silenced by the state nor by Zionist forces. Our voices will be heard and our movement will strategize, advance and take action! Visit http://www.divestmentconference.com/ for speakers, workshops and more information!
Write to Rutgers University to express your opposition to administrative attempts to cancel the conference! The letters to the administration and other demonstrations of solidarity in support of the conference and our movement have been a major and impactful force. If you have not yet written to the administration, sent forward the action alert, endorsed the conference, registered for the conference or donated to the conference – now is the time to do so! Your support is critical and urgently needed!

CALL FOR PAPERS
The Third North American Conference of the Palestine Solidarity Movement seeks papers, documents and other written materials that memorialize historical and present experience in building Palestine solidarity and divestment movements.

We welcome papers with a historical focus, overviews of current movements and situations, and documents looking toward the future. These papers will be distributed at the conference, at Rutgers University on October 10-12, 2003, and beyond, published together as a record and a guide to movement-building. All SJP chapters and individuals are invited to submit papers and documents.
Please submit these papers and documents before September 27, 2003 to Snehal Shingavi at justiceinpalestine@hotmail.com.
