Copenhagen: Sunday café – Remembering Ghassan Kanafani/Ongoing struggle against Zionist colonialism

August 9 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sunday, 9 August
3:00 pm
Solidaritetshuset
Griffenfeldsgade 41
Norrebro, Copenhagen, Denmark

This year marks 48 years since Ghassan Kanafani, the Palestinian revolutionary author, was killed by Israeli Mossad terrorists outside his home in Beirut on July 8, 1972.

Kanafani was loved throughout the Arab world for his short stories and novels about the lives of Palestinians during occupation and in exile. He co-founded the PFLP in 1967 and co-wrote the PFLP’s landmark program The Strategy for the Liberation of Palestine in 1969.

The Zionist-Israeli colonization and oppression of the Palestinians continues to this day. But so is the resistance struggle. Currently, Palestinians and popular movements around the world are fighting against Israel’s annexation plans to colonize the most fertile parts of the West Bank.

Program for the meeting:

Presentation on Kanafani’s authorship and his political significance, including his analyzes of the Palestinian uprising 1936-1939 – by an activist from IF’s Middle East group. Reading of clips from Kanafani’s authorship. Then discussion

Palestinian food

Organizer: International Forum Middle East Group

Søndagscafe
Sted: Solidaritetshuset, Griffenfeldsgade 41, Nørrebro, København
Tid: søndag den 9. august kl. 15-17.

Vi glemmer aldrig Ghassan Kanafani

Kampen mod zionistisk kolonisering fortsætte

I år er det 48 år siden at Ghassan Kanafani, den palæstinensiske revolutionære forfatter, blev dræbt af israelske Mossad-terrorister uden for hjemmet i Beirut, 8. juli 1972.

Kanafani var elsket i hele den arabiske verden for sine noveller og romaner om palæstinensernes liv under besættelse og i eksilet. Han var medstifter af PFLP i 1967 og med til at skrive PFLPs skelsættende program Strategien for Befrielsen af Palæstina fra 1969.

Den zionistisk-israelske kolonisering og undertrykkelse af palæstinenserne er fortsat op til i dag. Men det er modstandskampen også. I øjeblikket kæmper palæstinenserne og folkelige bevægelser verden over imod Israels annekteringsplaner der går ud på at kolonisere de mest frugtbare dele af Vestbredden.

Program for mødet:

Oplæg om Kanafanis forfatterskab og hans politiske betydning, herunder hans analyser af det palæstinensiske oprør 1936-1939 – ved aktivist fra IF’s Mellemøstgruppe. Oplæsning af klip fra Kanafanis forfatterskab. Herefter debat

Der serveres palæstinensiske lækkerier (Palestinian food)

Arrangør: Internationalt Forums Mellemøstgruppe
