Share Human Rights in Hebron and Area C of West Bank With Hamed Qawasmeh

Event Details

How do Palestinian human rights activists and international and local organisations support Palestinian communities at risk in the occupied West Bank? How do Palestinians continue to assert their rights to their homes and land when entire communities are threatened with forced eviction? What does Israel's expansion of illegal settlements mean for Palestinians on a daily basis? What role can the international community play, including people in the UK?

Hamed Qawasmeh will address these and other questions with a focus on the Hebron region in the southern West Bank, as a window onto Israel's continuing violations in the 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli military control, known as Area C.

Hamed directs the Hebron International Resources Network, is an activist in the Villages Group, and also works for the UN documenting human rights violations in the southern West Bank. He will share his experiences and those of the communities he works with, and discuss the impact of Israel's policies on the ground.

Hamed is from Hebron and previously worked for six years for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitiarian Affairs in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

As this is a free event tickets don't guarantee entry and seats will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
