Noam Chomsky at Imperial

Mar 11

Imperial College Palestinian Society is very proud to play host to one of the greatest names of our time, Professor Noam Chomsky. He will be joining us on 19-3-2013 from 12:00-13:30.
Professor Chomsky will begin by talking about Palestine and US policies relating to Palestine, followed by a lengthy question and answer session.

Professor Noam Chomsky is an Institute Professor and Emeritus Professor in the department of linguistics and philosophy at MIT. He is also an influential figure in the fields of computer science, mathematics and psychology, and as many of you will know, is also well-known for his critique of US foreign policy, state capitalism and mainstream news media, which will be the main feature of his discussions with us.

Please ensure you arrive at 12:00 with your printed booking confirmation. Our time with Professor Chomsky is limited so please arrive promptly to ensure a smooth running of the event and allowing us the maximum amount of time possible.

Heya!

My name is Beth and I’m the Universities Network Co-ordinator at Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT).
I wonder if you might be able to help me.

Imperial has a number of links to the arms trade but, as far as I know, no anti arms trade group. I would love to help some students to start one up at Imperial.
I’m emailing you to ask if you, or any of your members, would be interested in coming to an introductory meeting on the arms trade and anti arms trade campaigning at Imperial, with the aim of maybe setting up a small group at the university?

Imperial University is involved in some research projects which Israel Aerospace Industries is also a part of.
CAAT have been talking to someone who’s part of the BDS movement about getting some university campaigns going against university projects such as this.
We would love to help out if you were interested in running a campaign against Imperial being involved in such projects.
If you would like we could have a chat sometime this week or next about the possibilities for us working together on something like this.

If you could forward this to your mailing list and anyone you think may be interested I would be really grateful.

I look forward to hearing from you
With thanks, Beth

Anyone is welcome to come along at 6:30pm in Huxley 711c. This is on the 7th floor of the maths dept.

As you all know Apartheid Week is coming up so before our Dabke session we will be having a commitee meeting to get the ball rolling on our plans.

If you haven’t been watching it, there is a new Channel 4 drama series on about the British force in 1940s Palestine.

The blurb:

 The Promise follows feisty 18-year-old Londoner Erin (Little Dorrit’s Claire Foy) who finds her terminally ill grandfather Len’s diary in his dusty Leeds home and learns of his role as a sergeant in the postwar British force instructed to keep the peace in Palestine. Visiting Tel Aviv for her gap year, she retraces his steps to uncover a heartbreaking secret.
