Default Drew SJP Presents: “Our Destiny is to Resist” with Bassam Tamimi on Wednesday, Sep 16

Drew SJP will kick off the semester with an amazing event by hosting a Palestinian Human Rights activist on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 12:30 pm in the Space in the EC.

Bassem Tamimi is an internationally recognized Palestinian human rights activist from the West Bank farming village of Nabi Saleh, where weekly nonviolent demonstrations are held in opposition to illegal Israeli settlement construction and military occupation.

Bassem has been detained by the Israeli authorities over a dozen times, at one point spending three years in administrative detention without trial. Bassem has been described by the European Union as a “human rights defender” and Amnesty International has demanded his release as a “prisoner of conscious”.
Bassem will speak about his village’s work for freedom and justice and the struggles endured by his family and others who have been injured and/or imprisoned.

*Free Middle Eastern Lunch and Refreshments Served!!
Cosponsored by the Middle East Studies department
