Episode 292. What These Palestinian & Israeli Activists Need Us to Know: Standing Together’s Sally Abed & Alon-Lee Green  Sally Abed, an elected leader at Standing Together and Alon-Lee Green, the National co-Director and a founder of Standing Together, talk us through what is happening in Palestine and Israel right now, their own stories of growing up and living through it, and how we can help in their mission to bring liberation, equality, and peace to all who live on the land: - Why Palestinian liberation and Jewish safety are completely interconnected;  - Who’s really benefiting from the U.S. sending billions of dollars to the Israeli government; - The myths Americans have been taught about the Palestinian-Israeli crisis;  - Why Sally says it is vital that Americans not “sit out” the upcoming elections; and - How we can help the PEOPLE on the land today to secure a ceasefire, end the Israeli occupation of Palestine, bring the hostages home, and secure peace, liberation, and safety for all.  On Standing Together:  Standing Together is a grassroots movement mobilizing Jewish and Palestinian citizens of Israel in pursuit of peace, equality, and social and climate justice. While the minority who benefit from the status quo of occupation and economic inequality seek to keep us divided, we know that we — the majority — have far more in common than that which sets us apart. When we stand together, we are strong enough to fundamentally alter the existing socio-political reality. The future that we want — peace and independence for Israelis and Palestinians, full equality for all citizens, and true social, economic, and environmental justice — is possible. Because where there is struggle, there is hope. - To Learn More: https://www.standing-together.org/en - To Join their Mission: https://www.standing-together.org/friends  - To Give:  https://www.standing-together.org/donatehere - If you can attend their NYC event: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fighting-for-peace-and-justice-standing-together-nyc-fundraiser-registration-849180350287 To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.
