Zionism, Fascism and the Free Speech Debates: A Fundraiser for the Dr. Rabab Abdulhadi Defense Fund

November 7, 2017

Appetizers and Drinks Will be Provided

Time: 6-9pm Location: 518 Valencia St, San Francisco, CA 94110. Accessible Space.

Sponsored by the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild Co-Sponsors: Palestinian Youth Movement (PYM), Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC), Anti Police-Terror Project (APTP), Alliance of South Asians Taking Action (ASATA), International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network (IJAN)

Among the speakers will be Dr. Rabab Abdulhadi, the San Francisco State University professor publicly accused by AMCHA and seven other Zionist organizations of "egregious misuse of university and taxpayer funds" and "meetings with terrorists" after a 2014 academic trip to Jordan and Palestine. In 2016, she was targeted by the David Horowitz "Freedom Center," which posted fliers on SFSU's campus reading “Rabab Abdulhadi: A leader of the Hamas BDS Campaign, Collaborator with Terrorists, San Francisco State Profesor, #JewHatred.” Despite SFSU's investigation finding that AMCHA's claims had no merit, Professor Abdulhadi was then subjected to a lawsuit this year by the Lawfare Project--whose director has repeatedly denied the existence of Palestinians--and mega-firm Winston & Strawn LLP. Last month, Professor Abdulhadi and her attorneys filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit against her.

Speakers will also include NLG attorneys and others.
