On April 23rd Temple University Students for Intellectual Freedom hosted a gathering of racist, Islamophobic bigots. The event was titled the “Islamic Apartheid Conference” and featured Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, among others.
Occupy Temple, the International Socialist Organization, Students for Justice in Palestine, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, Occupy Philadelphia and other community and student organizations held a protest to condemn their outrageous hate speech.
In the wake of the recent hate crime/murder of Shaima Alawadi (32 year-old Iraqi-Muslim, and mother of 5 children), the wrongful imprisonment of Tarek Mehanna, the murder of Trayvon Martin, and the constant demonization, criminalization, and crimes against Black, Latino, and other oppressed communities throughout the country, among unending wars against Arab and Muslim countries, we must organize a multi-racial fightback against these racist hatemongers.
