Join us at 1 PM ET / 8 PM Palestine on Nakba Day, Saturday, May 15th, 2021, to hear from:
Majd Barbar: recently released after twenty years in Israeli jails, former political prisoner who inspired the world by throwing a now-famous release party with his wife and family in a celebration of love, life, and the continuation of struggle after imprisonment. Israel re-arrested Majd after his release in an attempt to impose a house arrest order on him to limit his movement, but he was freed again the next day after international condemnation.
Leena Khattab: former political prisoner arrested for her student organizing and activism, she joins us to speak about the case of her brother, Ata Khattab, cultural worker and choreographer for El-Funoun Popular Dance Troupe, detained by the Israelis since his arrest in early February 2021. #FreeAtaKhattab
Dalia Nassar: project coordinator for the Union of Palestinian Women’s Committees (UPWC), who will discuss the case of Khitam Saafin, president of the UPWC, arrested in mid-November of 2020 and placed under administrative detention, an order that detains Palestinians without charge or trial on the basis of secret evidence. #FreeKhitamSaafin
USPCN co-founder and leader of our Bay Area chapter, Monadel Herzallah, will facilitate the conversation.
