‘The challenges facing Palestinians – An eyewitness report’

Speaker Niparun Nessa (Oldham NUT)

Nefa Nessa (NUT)Nessa was part of an NUT delegation to Palestine in February of this year. The aim of the trip was to continue to develop new and existing links with teachers, trade unionists and activists, while finding out more about the issues ongoing in the area. The delegation stayed in Jerusalem, and also went to Yaffa, Ramallah, Bethlehem and Hebron.

Writing about her trip to Palestine Niparun says  “Palestinians are highly educated and place huge importance on education. Children have to pass through checkpoints to get to school and university and parents refuse to allow the occupation to stop their children from getting the education they deserve. We met many amazing and inspirational students whose smiles I will remember forever!”

Niparun Nessa has been a secondary maths teacher since 2009. She is the Assistant Secretary, Young Teacher Officer, and International Solidarity Officer for Oldham NUT.
