Occupation, Inc.

Mar 10 2016


441 Cannon House Office Building
Washington, DC

The Foundation for Middle East Peace, Human Rights Watch and Americans For Peace Now cordially invite you to a panel discussion of Human Rights Watch’s new report, Occupation, Inc.: How Settlement Businesses Contribute to Israel’s Violations of Palestinian Rights.

“Businesses should stop operating in, financing, servicing, or trading with Israeli settlements in order to comply with their human rights responsibilities,” Human Rights Watch said in the press release for their report. “Those activities contribute to and benefit from an inherently unlawful and abusive system that violates the rights of Palestinians. “

Discussing the report will be its author, Sarah Saadoun, who is the Leonard H. Sandler Fellow at Human Rights Watch, and Lara Friedman, the Director of Policy and Government Relations for Americans for Peace Now. The discussion will be moderated by Matthew Duss, President of the Foundation for Middle East Peace.

To RSVP, email Philip Sweigart.
