January Fireside Film Night:
A virtual conversation with Khaled Barakat, Palestinian activist and writer.
FRIDAY JAN. 28 @7:00pm PST
Instead of our usual film screening, I will host a discussion with Khaled Barakat, Palestinian activist and writer. Khaled was recently in Madrid for the launch of a new Palestinian initiative, the Alternative Palestinian Path, or Masar Badil.
We will discuss a new, liberated future for Palestine, and a Palestinian vision of justice and equality. Find out more about why Palestinians are moving beyond the two-state narrative and what you can do to get involved in the movement for justice in Palestine. Bring your thoughts and questions to the discussion!
Land acknowledgement begins at 7:00pm PST on Friday, January 28, followed by our discussion. The Zoom room opens at 6:30pm for (virtual) social chat and new year tidings.
- 6:30pm – chat lobby opens
- 7:00pm – Welcome by xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) elder and activist Mary Point, followed by discussion and Q&A with special guest Khaled Barakat.
Khaled Barakat is a Palestinian writer and activist. His writing in Arabic and English is widely published in Al-Akhbar, Al-Adab, Electronic Intifada and many other publications. He coordinates the Follow-Up Committee for the Palestinian Alternative Revolutionary Path Movement (Masar Badil).
These events will be recorded.
