Iyad Burnat – Non-violent Resistance in Palestine (Cambridge Forum, First Parish Church (UU)

  • First Parish Cambridge (UU) 3 Church Street, Harvard Square Cambridge, MA 02138 (map)

Iyad Burnat, who is featured in the Oscar-nominated film "Five Broken Cameras," is the coordinator for the Popular Committee in Bil'in, Palestine.

For 10 years, Iyad and the Popular Committee of this small village have held weekly non-violent demonstrations against the confiscation of their land. They have repeatedly been met with violence by the Israeli military.

Iyad is coming to the Boston area to describe what life is like under Israeli occupation, his village's ongoing struggle for justice and freedom, and what inspires him to continue non-violent resistance.
