What is Expose AIPAC?
Expose AIPAC is a three-day summit being held to coincide with the AIPAC National Summit occurring October 13-15 in Boston.
We are convening the summit in order to expose the corrupt practices of the political lobby American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and the broader Israel lobby of which it is a part. Over the course of these three days we will hold a people’s forum with noted activists, public intellectuals, and policymakers to discuss AIPAC’s corrupting influence over American foreign policy and domestic politics along with a day of defiance and speaking out within earshot of the AIPAC National Summit.

Yet there is a tradition of American anti-imperialism that gives the lie to this mythology.
