Santa Cruz Indymedia | Anti-War

Tue Mar 29 2011 Meet and Hear Palestinian Author & Activist Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh
Popular Resistance in Palestine: A history of Hope & Empowerment On Saturday, April 2nd, Dr. Mazin Qumsiheh, a Palestinian author and activist, will speak about militant nonviolence and the Palestinian struggle at three events in Santa Cruz. Viewpoints will galvanize around the following topic of discussion: "Given the current turmoil in Egypt, the impasse in making progress towards a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the prominent role that the U.S. government plays in the Middle East region, what should be the priorities of U.S. Middle East policy and why?”

Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh teaches and does research at Bethlehem and Birzeit Universities in Israeli occupied Palestine. He previously served on the faculties of the University of Tennessee, Duke and Yale Universities. Qumsiyeh is president of the Palestinian Center for Rapprochement Between People and coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Beit Sahour. His most acclaimed book is Sharing the Land of Canaan: human rights and the Israeli/Palestinian Struggle.

He published an activism handbook on his website qumsiyeh.org. Qumsiyeh’s main interest is media activism and public education. He also regularly lectures on issues of human rights and international law. His new book Popular Resistance in Palestine reviews Palestinian nonviolent civilian resistance to displacement and occupation dating back to the beginning of the 19th century until today.

The events are sponsored by the Middle East Program of Resource Center for Nonviolence and the Palestine Israel Action Committee.
