Join Carleton SJP and Anti-Imperialist Alliance for a public screening of the new and acclaimed film, “Fedayin,” which chronicles the course of a Lebanese communist, imprisoned in 1984 for his involvement in the struggle for the liberation of Palestine — and Lebanon — from Zionist occupation. From the Palestinian refugee camps that forged his conscience, to the international mobilization for his release, we will discover the man who has become one of the longest-held political prisoners in Europe.

The screening will be followed by a short discussion featuring Nahla Abdo Professor of sociology at Carleton University and Hassan Husseini Organizer with Labour for Palestine and National Negotiator with Public Service Alliance of Canada to discuss the film and actions that have demanded freedom for Abdallah, such as the global campaign in October.
