Bernard Regan (author of The Balfour Declaration: Empire, Mandate and Resistance in Palestine’& Executive member of Palestine Solidarity Campaign)
Sahbi Benzid (Hertfordshire NUT Membership Secretary and a recent visitor to Palestine)
A hundred years after its signing, Bernard Regan recasts the history of the Balfour Declaration as one of the major events in the story of the Middle East, which have polarised the region and the entire world. How can we help bring peace and justice to Palestine?
Israel is the only country in the world that systematically prosecutes children in military courts – between 500 and 700 each year.
Sahbi Benzid will report back on his recent visit, during which he visited several schools in Palestine and saw first-hand the effects of Israeli policies.
