Today’s show explores Palestinian movement building and solidarity between Palestinians and First Nations people in so-called Australia via edited excerpts from the Australia Palestine Advocacy Network’s inaugural Palestine Solidarity Conference. The conference was held on Kulin Nations land in Melbourne from the 27th to the 29th of January.
The first two segments are from the conference’s opening plenary session, “Organising for Palestine on stolen land: Solidarity and Intersectionality,” chaired by APAN Vice President Nasser Mashni. These excerpts include comments from Senator Lidia Thorpe, Kim Bullimore, Micaela Sahhar, and Randa Abdel-Fattah.
The third segment is from the closing plenary, “75 years of Nakba – What’s next for the movement?” chaired by Lina Koleilat. This excerpt features comments from Noura Mansour, Rand Khatib, and Tasnim Mahmoud Sammak.
