[SDCPJ] Free public Events at upcoming US Campaign Conference

PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY!

These events on Friday and Saturday night are FREE and OPEN to our SAN DIEGO COMMUNITY!

On Saturday night we'll hear from Tariq Abu Khdeir, whose story was on Democracy Now! on Thursday, Sept. 11:


Israeli Officer Charged for Beating of U.S. Teen

An Israeli police officer meanwhile has been charged with the beating of a Palestinian-American teenager that was caught on tape. Tariq Abu Khdeir was watching demonstrations in East Jerusalem when he was seized. The video shows him lying on the ground as the officers repeatedly beat him with batons.  He was left with facial bruises and severely swollen eyes and lips. Tariq was a cousin of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, the Palestinian teen burned alive in a revenge attack for the killings of the three Israelis in the West Bank.
