Palestine/Israel: Opening up the Dialogue Featured

Written by  Team SCPA


Opening up the Dialogue

T H U R S D A Y, A P R I L 4th  / 6 : 3 0 P.M.


It seems to be increasingly difficult to have a candid and open

discussion about the longstanding problems shared by Palestine and

Israel and all the people who have personal concerns there.

People are reluctant to bring up the subject and express their

views without being accused of prejudice or taking sides.


The Space Coast Progressive Alliance takes the side of all

people who are repressed or threatened. We stand for educating our

members and the public on factual information in order for

people to make up their own minds.


SCPA has gathered a powerful group of speakers who have

dedicated their lives to this issue. We are sure that people will leave

the evening feeling more informed and understanding. We required

of our speakers and our audience that no expression of hatred,

enticement to violence, or oppression of anyone is acceptable.


We take no sides on this issue other than the free enlightenment

of our community.
