From NM to Palestine: Ending Israel/U.S. Police Exchange, Reclaiming Safety

On Friday, Jan. 26, 6pm at the Peace Center, join The Red Nation, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the Indigenous Rights Center for a presentation on ending the Israel/U.S. Police Exchange.

     One of the most dangerous places where the regimes of Trump and Netanyahu converge is in exchange programs that bring together police, ICE, border patrol, and FBI from the U.S. with soldiers, police, border agents, etc. from Israel. In these programs, “worst practices” are shared to promote and extend discriminatory and repressive policing in both countries. These include extrajudicial executions, shoot-to-kill policies, police murders, racial profiling, massive spying and surveillance, deportation and detention, and attacks on human rights defenders.

     This event will feature Native and Palestinian-American speakers who can testify to the impact of deadly police violence on their communities. We will also discuss what actions activists can take back to their communities to bring an end to this violence.

Speakers include:

Melissa Tso, advisor to JVP End The Deadly Exchange Campaign and lead organizer in The Red Nation
Jennifer Marley, lead organizer in The Red Nation
Jeff Haas, Santa Feans for Justice in Palestine
Raneen Khweis, UNM Muslim Student Association
(More TBA)
