There has been a strong surge in support for Palestinian workers and people during the past year. From CWA UPTE at UC, UESF and CUNY AFT PSC in New York, union locals have voted to oppose US military and economic aid and supported a boycott of Israel.
This panel will look at this history and the efforts of the supporters of Israel to shut down debate, free speech and to intimidate trade unionists and workers to remain silent about apartheid Israel and support for it by the US government, and the AFL-CIO leadership which receives funding from the US government through the National Endowment of Democracy
