Due to the weather, the organizers of the Israel Block Party have moved the event to a private location indoors (Texas Hillel).
Therefore, the Palestine Solidarity Committee has canceled its plans to respond to the event. The Israel Block Party is taking place as a private party at a religious student center and is no longer able to garner public support for Israel’s oppression of the Palestinian people.
However, we will be putting together a high-profile Nakba Day in two weeks where we will march through campus and hold a vigil to remember the Palestinian refugees. We will be able to reach out to a greater number of people. Stay tuned, details will be announced soon.
We hope that Texas Hillel and Texans for Israel soon realize that the Israel Block Party, as it currently exists, is detrimental to the cause of peace in the Middle East.
