Voices of Palestinian Resistance with International Solidarity Movement

Date

Monday, April 16, 2018

Time

4:00 pm

Location

Rockefeller Hall 200-Auditorium

Since 2001, thousands of volunteers from around the world have joined the International Solidarity Movement to participate in Palestinian-led nonviolent resistance against Israeli human rights violations. They stayed with resistance fighters in the Nativity Church in Bethlehem, brought medical supplies to the ancient Nablus Casbah, and filmed the destruction and death in the Jenin refugee camp. They included Rachel Corrie, killed in Gaza and Tom Hurndall, shot in the head. In 2009, 2012 and 2014, ISM volunteers were in Gaza, reporting the Israeli invasion and helping in the hospitals, clinics and schools.
This event will include a screening of the documentary "Radiance of Resistance" featuring teen Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi, and then a talk by two members of the International Solidarity Movement.
