Capacity: Loading...

For decades, the people of Palestine and Kashmir have struggled against violent military occupations which have denied them autonomy and statehood. Governments across the world have turned a blind eye or - in many cases - actively supported and resourced Israel and India's human rights violations. This session will look at what's happening on the ground in Kashmir and Palestine, and will also explore how the left can practice international solidarity - including fighting back against attempts by the right to crack down on these forms of activism.

Speakers:

Ben Jamal is the Director of Palestine Solidarity Campaign and a member of the British Palestinian Policy Forum.
