Yesterday Naomi Klein gave a great talk at the Friends School in Ramallah. It was a short addendum to her January piece in The Nation supporting the BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) movement against Israel. I recorded it in video, but it came out too shaky, so here's the audio in mp3, 35 min long.
Speech is about movement-building, beginning with Klein's days working against apartheid, "a training ground" for many of the Israel/Palestine activists. Klein:
"There is a debate among Jews. I used to say the Jewish community then I got excommunicated. There is a debate among Jews–I'm a Jew by the way" that boils down to: "Never again to everyone, or never again to us?… [Some Jews] even think we get one Get away with genocide free card… There is another strain in the Jewish tradition that says, 'Never again to anyone.'"
Then thanks her parents for being in that second tradition!
