Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston

The nightmare at the US’ southern border–thousands of stranded asylum seekers, detention camps for migrants, and a border patrol on the rampage–
is a horrifying slice of a global problem. Wars, economic disaster, and environmental devastation are displacing people all around the world. The US and
other states respond with violence, but we must build solidarity.

• Khury Petersen-Smith is an activist and geographer who lives in Boston. He is the Michael Ratner Middle East Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies. Khury is an activist in the International Socialist Organization and has written and organized particularly on US empire, solidarity with the Palestinian struggle, and Black liberation. He co-organized the 2015 Black-Palestine Solidarity Statement, which was signed by over 1,100 Black scholars, activists, and artists.
