Iyad Burnat is the coordinator of the Popular Committee in Bil'in, Palestine, a small farming village 7 miles west of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank. For 10 years Iyad and the Popular Committee have organized weekly demonstrations against the illegal Israeli "Wall" that has taken their farm land, olive trees, and livelihood. His brother filmed the Academy Awards' documentary "FIVE BROKEN CAMERAS" that recorded the village resistance to Israel's brutal oppression. The village has had several deaths and many severe, permanent injuries. This past summer Iyad's 15-year-old son was shot in the leg by an Israeli military sniper, severing a nerve and requiring ongoing medical care. Iyad will describe what life is like under Israeli occupation, his village's ongoing struggle for justice, human rights and freedom, and what inspires him to continue non-violent resistance. Photos and videos will accompany his presentation, and he will be available to answer your questions.
