Steve Quester and Blue Stockings

Steve, who returned last week from a summer in Palestine, will be speaking on Wednesday at 7 o'clock in Bluestockings Bookstore in the East Village.

It sounds like he will be with other activists from Jews Against the Occupation (JAtO), to report on the present situation in Palestine and their work with the International Solidarity Movement.

Bluestockings Books is a wonderful, spunky little independent bookstore on the east side of Allen Street, between Stanton and Rivington, just one and a half blocks south of Houston Street.

For those outside of New York who have been following his reports, or for anyone interested in the issues who would like to arrange a forum in their own community, Steve writes that he is more than anxious to speak, show slides and to provide other speakers as well.

"I'll speak at your church, synagogue, or mosque, in your living room, at your yoga center, or wherever you can gather a few people together.

If you're outside the New York area and would like ISMers [members of the International Solidarity Movement] to come speak, let me know. There may be folks in your area, or a speaking tour coming through."

You can contact him through JAtO: jatonyc@yahoo.com, voicemail (212) 539-6683, or by sending an email to me.

Bluestocking's phone number is 212-777-6028.
