Cork Palestine Solidarity Campaign is honoured to host a timely and important evening with preeminent Palestinian scientist, author and activist Mazin Qumsiyeh.


Mazin will discuss how Palestine evolved as a global issue and why the situation does matter to people of all backgrounds globally. He will discuss the challenge of bringing peace with justice in this last persistent colonial/apartheid system. There is hope due to persistent Palestinian resistance, growing global support (e.g. via
boycotts, divestments, and sanctions), and the blatant zionist propaganda and oppression. The global geopolitical landscape is shifting now and he will discuss why these changes will be reflected in the acceleration of decolonization.
