Come to meet others who are interested, and hear a talk by Jeff Klein, "The Crisis in Gaza"

Jeff Klein is a life-long activist. From his role as a local union president to joining the South African freedom struggle in the late 1980s, Jeff has been involved in fighting for peace and justice for many years. Since 2003, Jeff has been active with Dorchester People for Peace and several Palestine solidarity organizations, including Massachusetts Peace Action. Nearly every year for the past decade, Jeff has traveled to Palestine/Israel and elsewhere in the Middle East – including Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt; he has many close friends among grassroots activists in the Middle East and has learned and shared in their experiences. In July 2009, he participated in the Viva Palestina relief convoy to Gaza, which brought much needed aid to blockaded Gaza.  Jeff has spoken many times about the Israel-Palestine issue in schools, churches, community and peace organizations, mosques and has appeared on local and international TV and radio. He has also published articles and op-ed pieces on US policy and Middle East issues.
