activist, Omar Barghouti, on Thursday 3 May at 8PM. The meeting will be held in one of the Eden Grove seminar rooms.

About Omar Barghouti:
Barghouti is an independent Palestinian commentator and human rights activist. He is a founding member of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) and the Palestinian Civil Society Boycott, Deivestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel.
His book, 'Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions: The Global Struggle for Palestinian Rights' (2011) makes the case for a rights-based BDS campaign to stop Israel's rapacious occupation, colonization, and apartheid against the Palestinian people. This considered, convincing collection contributes to the growing debate on Israel's violations of international law and points the way forward to a united global civil society movement for freedom, justice, self-determination, and equality for all.
