Palestine: key terms and concepts – a lunchtime talk with Sarona Bedwan

Join our next lunchtime talk to hear about the key terms that define and shape our understanding of Palestine. The talk will look at concepts such as occupation, apartheid and settler colonialism as they apply to the case of Palestine. We'll also unpack how the struggle for Palestinian dignity and freedom is inherently intertwined with the struggle against environmental injustices and exploitation.

Our lunchtime talks are a series of 1 hour webinars and discussions for Friends of the Earth staff and local action group members. They're designed to stimulate thinking and increase awareness of different approaches to campaigning and the issues other campaigns are tackling.
