Join us in Ottawa, Canada, for the Liberation Conference. This three-day weekend of events and actions for Palestine aims to confront colonialism and build towards liberation by strategizing together for collective struggle.
This anti-colonial conference will highlight the path forward for the Palestinian liberation movement in North America, by focusing on building connections and mutual support with the Indigenous liberation struggles and Black liberation movement, as well as with working-class and labour organizing and international liberation movements. Combining intensive strategy sessions, workshops and panels and a mass anti-colonial march, the Liberation Conference Ottawa 2023 aims at resisting colonialism and imperialism across cultural, political, and economic fronts and the formation of an alliance.
The conference is situated in the Palestinian diaspora and will focus on struggles in North America, while remaining rooted to the struggle for liberation and return and the defeat of Zionism, colonialism and imperialism.
This congregation will build on the learnings and internationalist network of the Masar Badil, the Palestinian Alternative Revolutionary Path Movement, especially its week of actions in Brussels during October 2022 and its founding conference in Madrid, Sao Paulo and Beirut in October 2021.
