in Occupied Palestine"

The Wishcamper Center, USM Campus
Bedford St., room 133
Planned in celebration of the UN Human Rights Day
Event organized by Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights
Mohammad, Director of the Media Unit at Lajee Center, a youth organization in Aida Refugee Camp, Bethlehem, in Palestine, is a talented photographer, documentary film maker, and teacher of photography & video production. His films have appeared in the Chicago and Boston Palestine Film Festivals about the water crisis in his community and about the terrible effects of Israel's imprisonment of children. An exhibit of his photography will be shown at Tufts University this fall.
Mohammad has unfortunately experienced personally the violence of the Israeli occupation, having been shot (in the face) and arrested by the Israeli army, both due to his work as a photographer.
This event is free & open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Palestinian olive oil and pottery will be on sale. A great chance to do some early Christmas shopping! FMI: 207-239-8060; email@example.com
