Austin, TX

Israeli activist Gal Lugassi will be speaking at Monkeywrench Books (110 E North Loop Blvd) and raising money for the Israeli activist group Anarchists Against the Wall.

Gal Lugassi is an Israeli conscientious objector, a member of the Shiministim, an activist with the Anarchist Against the Wall action group, and the Boycott! from Within group. She also volunteers at the Coalition of Women for Peace and with the Who Profits proj…ect.

Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW) is a direct action group that was established in 2003 in response to the construction of the wall Israel is building on Palestinian land in the Occupied West Bank. The group works in cooperation with Palestinians in a joint popular struggle against the occupation.

Since its formation, the group has participated in hundreds of demonstrations and direct actions against the wall specifically, and the occupation generally, all over the West Bank. All of AATW’s work in Palestine is coordinated through villages’ local popular committees and is essentially Palestinian led.

This event is sponsored by Monkeywrench Books and the Palestine Solidarity Committee.

  1. I am trying to follow the newer speakers– or I should say, speakers to come. Is there a way to get this info beforehand?
