Palestinian Workers Under Occupation

0.0 ·

Moderated and introduced by Ilian Burbano. Presentations by:

  • Issam Al Yamani is a founding member and organizer of the Toronto Palestine Film Festival.
  • Mary-Jo Nadeau is active with Faculty for Palestine.
  • Liisa Schofield is active with Labour for Palestine.
  • Imad Temeiza is the co-founder and former elected leader of the Palestinian Postal Service Workers’ Union (PPSWU). He is currently the PPSWU International Relations Representative.

Imad Temeiza discusses the multiple levels of oppression that Palestinian workers face in the Palestinian Territories occupied by Israel in 1967, including the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem. Workers’ struggle and resistance will be situated in the context of the failed Oslo Peace Process which began in the early 1990s, and led to the creation of the Palestinian Authority. Contrary to the goal of creating a two-state solution, this process led to a system of Apartheid, as prominently witnessed throughout the Territories, in cities such as Hebron.

Recorded in Toronto, 2 March 2019.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
