Dear members and supporters,

We write with a cordial invitation for you to attend the keynote lecture titled “Gaza and Beyond – Human Rights Priorities” on November 29th, the UN International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People and the associated seminars on Saturday 1st December. We are honoured to welcome Shawan Jabarin, director of Palestinian human rights group Al-Haq, to speak at these events.

The Israeli authorities have just granted permission for Shawan to travel to Australia. Shawan has had his ability to travel severely restricted since 2006 and was unable to accept our invitation to come to Sydney in May when he delivered the 2012 Nakba Commemoration Lecture by video link.

Now you have the opportunity to hear him in person.

Keynote address: 6pm, Thursday 29 November 2012 – UN International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People
New Law Lecture Theatre 104, Eastern Avenue, University of Sydney

Saturday seminars: 12:30- 5pm, Saturday 1 December 2012

This is  a rare opportunity to hear an eloquent spokesperson for human rights, and peace with justice, speak on the UN International Day of Solidarity for the Palestinian People .

You are warmly invited to these free events, organised by CJPP in partnership with Sydney Peace Foundation. Light refreshments will be available.

We apologise for the short notice but it is only one week since we heard he would be allowed to travel to Australia.
