Black-Palestinian Solidarity: Contesting Settler Narratives


Add to My Calendar Wednesday, November 6, 2019 9:00am to Friday, November 8, 2019 5:30pm


University of Melbourne

Join Advocacy Director Nadia Ben-Youssef as she participates in the discussion on "Pan-Cultural Movements, Decolonisation and the Post-National" and presents research on "Slouching Towards Bandung: Rooting our decolonised future in our anti-colonial past" at the 2nd historic Black-Palestinian Solidarity Conference November 6 at the University of Melbourne, Australia. 

The conference will look at the long-standing solidarity between Aboriginal and Palestinian peoples in the continent now known as Australia and across the globe in the struggle against settler colonial occupation. Furthermore, the conference will reflect on the role and forms of solidarity in precarious times of modern nation statehood, questioning how, with the hardening of immigration policies, the closing of borders, the rise of right-wing discourses, and historical institutional racism, members of the international community can work towards self-determination and sovereignty, separate from national and state governments.
