“You have something in this world – stand up for it.”
On 8 July 1972 Israeli agents assassinated well known Palestinian writer, activist and socialist leader Ghassan Kanafani. Gunned down in Beirut along with his young niece Lamis, Kanafani was targeted for his political standpoint against imperialism and for the cause of Palestinian liberation.
Author of graphic, realist novels on exile and struggle, Kanafani was also a political theorist and Marxist thinker. For this special event on the 50th anniversary of his martyrdom, we welcome guest speaker, leading writer and activist Khaled Barakat (video link) to present the life work of this essential figure of Palestinian resistance.
