WHEN: Tuesday, November 27, 2018 from 7-9 PM
WHERE: NYU Kimmel Center 60 Washington Square South NY NY
Benjamin Netanyahu is strengthening his alliances with Viktor Orban, Rodrigo Duterte, Jair Bolsonar, and, of course, Donald Trump. Can cross-border alliances counter the winds of authoritarianism? How can independent media harness the opportunities presented by an upended status quo to create change on the ground? And what can American activists do about it all?
Democratic institutions in Israel have always faced strains. Today, however, they are imperiled.
Dissent is policed through blacklists, travel bans, and government campaigns against human rights groups. Protests against the occupation are increasingly coming under oppression, especially when the protesters are Palestinian. The country’s once-lively media is becoming susceptible to the pressures of its main antagonist, Benjamin Netanyahu. The recent Nation-State Law formalizes Jewish supremacy.
