Monday 2/4: Human Right Activist Mark Turner
7pm, 20 Barrows, UC Berkeley

"Redefining the Occupation in Palestine": International human rights activist, Mark Turner, recently spent nine months in Balata Refugee Camp in Nablus where he volunteered with medical crews during Israeli military invasions and operations. Mark's films bring attention to the continued, illegal use of human shields by the Israeli military, including an incident in which soldiers kidnapped an eleven-year-old girl. In 2003, Mark founded the Research Journalism Initiative (RJI), an interactive program that provides tools to teachers and students learning about the Occupation. RJI staff living in the West Bank work with Palestinian students to produce film, radio, photographic and print media, then facilitate live videoconferences between American high school students and Palestinian university students, creating opportunities for a direct exchange that is free of the filters typical of the mainstream American media.
