Come and hear Dr Mona El-Farra speak at The Big Ride re-union dinner. A physician by training and one of Palestine’s greatest human rights and women’s rights activist in the occupied Gaza Strip, where she lives. Dr Mona is also the Vice President of the Red Crescent Society in the Gaza Strip.

Dr. Mona is known in Gaza as “the mother of the poor children” for her tireless work for the Red Crescent and the Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA). She will share with us the painful stories of ongoing collective punishment by the Israeli military upon the civilian population, introduce us to her work in children’s psychological support programmes, in the aftermath of the latest Israeli aggression, and talk about her contribution to establishing a number of health and cultural centres, the most prominent of which is the al-Aouda Hospital.

As well as Dr Mona’s talk, your ticket also includes dinner and the opportunity to meet some of the cyclists who took part in the ride and hear first-hand their experiences along the route.

We look forward to seeing you!

‘The Law in These Parts’ + Q&A

Tuesday 24th June

+ guest speaker Elian Weizman

Can a democracy impose an indefinite military occupation on another people while retaining democratic values?

Since Israel occupied the territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip in 1967, the military has imposed thousands of orders and laws, established military courts, sentenced hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, enabled half a million Israeli “settlers” to move to the Occupied Territories and developed a system of long-term jurisdiction by an occupying army that is unique in the entire world. The Law In These Parts explores this Apartheid legal system through testimonies of the military legal professionals who were its architects. The film invites the viewer to ‘judge’ the testimony of these military judges, yet never lets the viewer forget the place of Palestinian experience at the centre of this brutal system.    Directed by Ra’anan Alexandrowicz.

See the film trailer.

Followed by a discussion with Elian Weizman on law and resistance to Zionism within Israel, and on the interrelationship of law, hegemony and resistance.  

Dr Elian Weizman is a Teaching Fellow in Government and Politics of the Middle East and Israeli Politics at SOAS, and teaches Politics & History at Brunel University.

All welcome! Doors open 7pm,  start: 7.30pm.
