The Struggle to Free Palestine: Hatem Abudayyeh Speaks Out
02/23/2013 - 3:30pm - 5:00pm
Come hear Hatem Abudayyeh, a prominent Palestinian activist speak on the growing struggle to end the occupation of Palestine, and the repression that is being unleashed on Palestine solidarity activists here in the U.S.
Abudayyeh is one of the anti-war and international solidarity activists who were raided by the FBI, on Sept 24, 2010 and called to a Chicago grand jury investigating “material support for terrorism.” He is Executive Director of the Arab American Action Network in Chicago, a founding Advisory Board member of the National Network for Arab American Communities, and one of the main organizers of the United States Palestine Community Network's two national conferences in 2008 and 2010, each attended by over 1,200 people.
Abudayyeh writes and speaks on issues related to the Arab community in Chicago and the U.S., as well as foreign policy as it regards Palestine, Iraq, and the Arab World.
