The Palestian Solidarity Movement

The Palestinian Solidarity Movement is planning their annual conference for this February to be held at Georgetown University. (If you want to know more you can google georgetwon psm). My question is, is anybody organizing anything? I want to try to organize something to bring people down there from CT, but I would like to find out if anybody is already on the case?

For those unfamiliar: The PSM is an umbrella organization that connects various U.S. and Canadian groups; its yearly gathering offers an opportunity for the constituent elements to establish a visible presence on a prestigious university campus and plan strategy and tactics for a movement dedicated to delegitimizing the state of Israel. Over the past several years, the convocation has been held at Ohio State, the University of Michigan and the University of California at Berkeley. In October, it was the turn of Duke University.

At the last conference held at Duke University in 2004, Huwaida Arraf, one of the PSM's main organizers, admitted that the Palestine Solidarity Movement works with Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Please, if anybody knows of anybody who is organizing something let me know. Thanks.
