So last time I wrote about Boulder, it was in defense of naked pumpkin-headed people running down the Pearl Street Mall. But last night I drove up there, when the streets were indeed fully clothed, to catch the Colorado stop of the national tour “Separate Is Never Equal: Stories of Apartheid from South Africa to Palestine,” presented by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and hosted by the Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center on the University of Colorado campus (yes, the onetime home of Ward Churchill himself!). This isn’t exactly my idea of an enjoyable Monday evening, but I’d gotten wind that members of the Israeli student group planned to show up, listen respectfully to the speakers (which they did), and then ask hard-hitting questions during the Q&A (which they also did).
Read the account of the evening — with several audio clips — here!
