On 24 October 2022, Georges Abdallah — the Lebanese Arab struggler for Palestine — will enter his 39th year in French prisons. Join us to mark the International Month of Action to Free Georges Abdallah and to learn about his story by joining us for a screening of “Fedayin,” the powerful documentary highlighting the Palestinian struggle through the life and resistance of Georges Abdallah.

We will also focus on the 50 Palestinian prisoners currently on hunger strike in Israeli occupation prisons to demand an end to administrative detention, imprisonment without charge or trial. 30 Palestinian prisoners have been on hunger strike since 25 September and 20 more since 9 October to demand justice and freedom. This event is also part of the global week of action for the hunger strikers.

Free admission, donations welcome

This event is taking place on the unceded and occupied territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) peoples. The organizers stand in full solidarity and support of Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination and with the ongoing movements to defend land, water and Indigenous peoples from plunder and settler colonialism.
