Panels listed below.
Gaza: Now and Next
It’s been 11 years since Israel imposed a land, sea and air siege on Gaza. Learn how this ongoing siege has affected the people of Gaza and what the international community can do for nearly 2 million of its residents.
Jerusalem: On the ground
The panel will discuss the increase of illegal Israeli settlements, the restriction on holy sites, Palestinians being denied the right to live with their spouse and how Jerusalem is being sealed off.
Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia Come and learn how the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) redefinition of anti-Semitism deliberately tries to silence campaigning for Palestinian rights. And with the normalisation of anti-Muslim rhetoric along with the rise of far-right hate groups, what can we can do to help combat the growth of hate?
Prevent, Palestine and University Complicity
Prevent, the government’s counter-terrorism strategy, falsely claim one indicator for radicalisation is a ‘desire for political and moral change’. Learn how this is used to unfairly target Palestine activism, threaten freedom of speech on campus and how we can challenge this.
Get involved in the discussion and ask any questions regarding Palestine.
