Information evening on Palestine next Thursday Information evening on Palestine next Thursday

Understanding Palestine is the title of a public event that will be held in Galway City next Thursday, January 11, at 8pm.

The event, in the Galway Mechanics’ Institute, Middle Street, is being jointly organised by the Galway Council of Trade Unions, and the Irish Centre for the Histories of Labour and Class, based at the University of Galway.

Two invited speakers, Zoë Lawlor and Rania Muhareb, will present papers on aspects of the background to the ongoing conflict.

Zoë, who is Chair of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign, will provide a historical overview of circumstances in the region, and Rania, a researcher and Hardiman PhD Scholar at the Irish Centre for Human Rights at the University of Galway, will discuss South Africa’s decision to refer a case to the International Court of Justice, on the basis of its claim that Israel is carrying out ‘genocidal acts’ in Gaza.  Her PhD research is examining the concept of apartheid and its relevance to the situation in Palestine.

Admission to this event is free and all are welcome.
