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.
