The History of Israel & Palestine 1948 – the Present Day: Young Palestinian’s Perspectives
Presenter: Michael Lavalette
Based on interviews with close to two hundred young Palestinians, this talk will look at the impact of displacement, occupation and oppression on the Palestinians of the West Bank. The talk will include appropriate reference to the history of Palestine (pre and post Nakba) and will consider the future struggle for Palestinian rights.
