Ali Abunimah is author of "One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse" and has contributed to numerous other volumes and written hundreds of articles on the question of Palestine. He is co-founder of The Electronic Intifada, an award-winning online publication about Palestine and the Palestine-Israeli conflict.

Ali will review the current situation in Palestine-Israel, in particular attention to the blockade of Gaza, creeping apartheid in the West Bank and Israel, the failure of the peace process to produce a two-state solution, and future prospects for a just peace based on full equality for Palestinians and Israeli Jews.

Anna Baltzer is an American Columbia graduate, former Fulbright Scholar, the granddaughter of Holocaust refugees, and an award-winning lecturer, author, and activist for Palestinian rights. As a volunteer with the International Women's Peace Service in the West Bank, Baltzer documented human rights abuses and supported Palestinian-led nonviolent resistance to the Occupation. Baltzer has appeared on television more than 100 times (including most recently The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) and lectured at more than 400 universities, schools, churches, mosques, and synagogues around the world with her acclaimed presentation, "Life in Occupied Palestine: Eyewitness Stories & Photos," and her full-color book: Witness in Palestine: A Jewish American Woman in the Occupied Territories.
