Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network hosted the second in its webinar series on Thursday, 2 April 2020. Samidoun’s Europe coordinator Mohammed Khatib spoke about Palestinian refugees, the refugee camps and the struggle for the right to return.

The wide-ranging discussion included the current dire situation in the refugee camps in Lebanon, the threat posed by the spread of COVID-19 amid inadequate and dangerous health conditions and the importance of reclaiming the role of Palestinian refugees in the liberation movement. Participants in the meeting also included active organizers from a number of groups, including Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition, the Palestinian Youth Movement, the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, and Black4Palestine.

Khaled Barakat, the international coordinator of the Campaign to Free Ahmad Sa’adat and the speaker at Samidoun’s first webinar on 26 March, also intervened in the discussion. (Video of this webinar available at the link.)
