Progetto Palestina invites you to a day of Palestinian resistance! From 12:30 pm, join a social lunch at the self-managed center in hall C1, with the proceeds to finance BASKETBALL BEATS BORDERS, a project to support the Shatila Girls Basketball Team Real Palestinian Youth. Shatila Girls Basketball Team is made up of eight Palestinian girls between 16 and 20 years of age born and raised in Shatila refugee camp in Beirut. From 9 to 16 May, this team will be in Rome as part of a sports exchange.

At 5 pm, there will be a meeting in Classroom 5 of Einaudi Building, dedicated to the situation of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails. This event is in solidarity with the hunger strike of thousands of Palestinian prisoners and the struggle for freedom for Palestinian prisoners. The meeting will include a presentation by Myassar Atyani, cultural director of the General Union of Palestinian Women in Nablus, who will speak about her experiences in Israeli prisons. She will be joined by Sara Rawash, who will speak about her research in Palestine on the experiences of women political prisoners. The event will also include a screening of a portion of the documentary film, “Women in Struggle.” This will be followed at 9 pm by further discussion on Radio Blackout with Myassar Atyani at Via Antonio Cecchi 21.
