Video: Lebanon in Crisis: Palestinians and Lebanese in Resistance – Report of Ghassan Kanafani Brigade

On 2 October 2021, members of the Ghassan Kanafani Brigade to Lebanon, organized by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, spoke in an online reportback addressing the current crisis in Lebanon and the ongoing struggle of Palestinian refugees for justice, liberation and return.

In the summer of 2021, Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network launched the Ghassan Kanafani Brigade to Lebanon and the Palestinian refugee camps. The brigade, announced on the 49th anniversary of the assassination of Palestinian writer, leader and revolutionary Ghassan Kanafani, included activists and organizers based in Belgium, Spain, France, Sweden, the Netherlands, and elsewhere.
