Join us for an inspirational evening to hear from our international speakers about their inspirational stories of resistance against human rights abuses through education and active campaigns. Find out about corporate abuses, struggles over the control of resources and the aggressive spread of militarism across the world- and what YOU can do about it….
Speakers include:

– Ayed Abu Eqtaish, of Defence for Children International-Palestine section, protecting the rights of Palestinian children
