      Summary

This PMA will bring together activism around massive deportations, prison industrial commplex, displaced communities, border militarization, Paletine solidarity and Political Prisoner amnesty. 

From Palestine to the Americas people are experiencing the rise of police and military violence in colonized territories. Colonial occupations by the U.S. and Israel have implemented plans of counterinsurgency and counterintelligence heightened with the growing Prison Industrial Complex (PIC).  As a result; millions of people are detained and imprisoned for being undocumented or political activity and Political Prisoners go unrecognized by governments. Private contractors such as GEO group, G4S, and Corrections Corporations of America manipulate the global economy and have many private investments by big banks. Non­government agencies such as ALEC and corporations write racist and imperialist legislation to widen the gap of inequity between undocumented people, the working class and colonized/gentrified people. 

Goals

Attendees hope to build a regional plan that will hopefully lead to more PMA’s in the future. This group will strategize ways to build an intersectional movement and support current campaigns.  Attendees will explore the similarities between two settler­colonial societies, Israel and the United States, with the objective of understanding the intersectionalities of immigrant rights and Palestinian liberation struggles. Looking at the violation of the human rights and imperialistic borders need to be stop by the unification of locals groups working in strategies that support each other.
