Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh: Land Rights, Climate Justice, and Palestine

We are witnessing unprecedented violence and destruction throughout Palestine - especially the Gaza Strip. Over 32,000 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces, and thousands more are missing under the rubble. The occupied West Bank has also been targeted with raids and the detention of thousands of Palestinian people. 

Founder and Director of the Palestine Institute for Biodiversity and Sustainability, Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh says, "There is both a genocide and an ecocide going on, supported by some Western governments against the will of the Western public." An enormous global movement is rising to call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza, to end decades of colonisation, and work toward a free Palestine that delivers sustainable peace for all in the region.

Join us to hear first-hand from one of Palestine’s foremost environmental experts Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh, visiting Australia for the first time, in conversation with local Palestinian, First Nations and environmental justice advocates. Connect with others working to grow the global solidarity movement for peace, land rights and environmental justice.
