***** Same Land, Different Rights: Palestinian Citizens in Israel *****
UCL Friends of Palestine has the privilege of presenting:
ORNA KOHN, Senior Attorney at Adalah: The Legal Center for Arab Minority
Rights, in conversation with
Ben WHITE, Freelance Journalist and Author of Israeli Apartheid: A
Thursday 26th November
Biochemistry Lecture Theatre
While the official 'peace process' focuses on negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the Occupied Territories, inside Israel itself around 20 percent of the population is Palestinian. These citizens of Israel have struggled for over 60 years against systemic discrimination in relation to issues such as land, labour, and civil rights. Adalah is at the forefront of challenging this structural inequality, and this event is a unique opportunity to hear about the issues facing Palestinians inside Israel from a specialist attorney and human rights campaigner. Orna Kohn will discuss the institutionalised discrimination against Palestinians citizens of Israel, and the work of Adalah challenging these policies.
Adalah ('Justice' in Arabic) is an independent human rights organization and legal center. Adalah works to protect and defend the rights of Palestinian citizens of Israel and Palestinian residents of the Occupied PalestinianTerritories (OPT). www.adalah.org
