REDEFINING THE OCCUPATION IN PALESTINE: A
PRESENTATION AND DISCUSSION
WITH MARK TURNER, HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST

International human rights activist Mark Turner has returned from his most recent nine-month stay in Balata Refugee Camp in the northern West Bank city of Nablus. During his stay, Mark volunteered with medical relief crews during two major Israeli military invasions and documented scores of other military operations in and around Nablus and its refugee camps. Mark’s films helped to bring international attention to the continued, illegal use of human shields by the Israeli military in the West Bank, including an incident in which soldiers kidnapped an eleven-year-old girl and forced her to lead them into neighboring homes. Turner is currently touring the United States, presenting his experiences and analysis of the developing situation in Occupied Palestine.
