With the recent events in Ferguson MO (as in G20 in Toronto in summer 2010) the reality of militarization of police, equipment and tactics has come to North America. Jeff Halper speaks to this phenomenon in the larger perspective of “Global Pacification System”. He is a long-time activist, writer and commentator on Israel-Palestine known for his writing on the concepts and practice of “matrix of control,” and “people warehousing” as practised by Israel on the Palestinian population in Occupied Palestinian Territory, especially in Gaza.
* Jeff Halper is an Israeli peace activist and Nobel Prize Nominee. Co-Founder and Director of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD), Dr. Halper will be touring Canada for three weeks.
