Last night I spoke at an online event about Palestine organised by APAN (Australia Palestine Advocacy Network) and the Islamic Council of Victoria alongside former Palestinian parliamentarians (based in Palestine) Haneen Zoabi and Basel Ghattas:
The Albanese Labor Government has committed to recognising Palestine in this term. Great, but what does that actually mean? How will this contribute to international calls for justice for the Palestinian people? In this panel discussion we will hear from people that have a deep understanding of the harsh realities of Palestinian life under occupation and systemic discrimination. This timely conversation will highlight essential considerations for the Australian Government and for those interested in justice and dignity for Palestine.
