Dear Activists in the Palestine Solidarity Movement,

The organizing committee of the conference has passed a proposal to
change the conference location to Ohio State University and the date
to Nov 7-9, by the required 2/3 majority vote, and it is now time to
start building a successful conference oriented towards the
development of cohesive activist organizing strategies for the coming
year.  (A more in-depth explanation of why the conference host and
location were changed, as well as a detailed description of how this
vote took place can be found on the website:

Ensuring a democratically organized conference at OSU requires the
Organizing Committee of the Palestine Solidarity Movement be
transparent and representative of all groups.  If your organization
is not represented on the Organizing Committee it is extremely
important that you elect two members for your organization to
represent you.  (For more information on the democratic structure of
the movement, the voting procedure and the role of the Organizing
Committee, please visit:

Diverse national conference planning committees are now forming to
build an open and transparent conference.  All organizations can and
should plug into the national committees to help organize the
conference.  This structure is to help ensure that all organizations
have equal input and that the movement takes collective ownership
over the conference.  Organizations can have representatives join
whatever committee they want, but no more than one rep per group per
committee (The Host group CJP will have one rep on each committee to
facilitate communication and logistical needs between national
committees and the host).
