The University of Kent, in Canterbury, is hosting two talks on life in Palestine during February.
The Issue for Jerusalemites – the Past and the Future
The first is tomorrow, Tuesday 5th February, by Ahmad Muna, founder of the Kent Palestine Solidarity Society at the University of Kent. Ahmad is a Palestinian Jerusalmite, and he will be giving an insight into the complications of being a Palestinian in Jerusalem. In addition to the implications of being a Palestinian residing in Jerusalem. He will also talk about the right to self determination of Palestinians and their possible solution to the land grab.
This is an introductory event for the coming Israeli Apartheid Week held at the University of Kent held at the end of this month.
Everyday Life in Palestine
The second talk is the Rutherford College Grass Roots Lecture on Wednesday 18 February 2015.
The lecture, at 6pm in Rutherford Lecture Theatre One, will be given by Dr Keith Dimond, and is titled Everyday Life in Palestine.
Keith Dimond spent three months serving with a World Council of Churches programme in the Northern Palestinian City of Tulkarm. During this time he accompanied Palestinians in their everyday life, going with farmers to their fields located across the Israeli barrier or workers who cross the barrier each day to work in Israel. He also met with charitable organisations, both Israeli and international, that provide aid to Palestinians.
Over the three months he was able to meet with many Palestinian families and see something of their life. Keith will illustrate the talk with pictures he has taken.
The lecture will be followed by light refreshments hosted by the Master in the Rutherford Senior Common Room.
The talk is open to all, but if you would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so that the organisers have an idea of numbers.
