Bil’in and Non-Violent Resistance - postponed!

Iyad was refused a VISA buy the UK government. A decision which he is appealing.

In is a village in the West Bank which has been in the forefront of non-violent resistance to the Israeli occupation, in particular the impact of the Separation Wall on Palestinian communities.  Iyad Burnat is head of the Popular Committee against the Wall, helping to organise weekly demonstrations against the Wall since 2005.   The village achieved a partial victory when Israel’s Supreme Court ruled that the route of the Wall must be changed, restoring 30% of its stolen land to the village.

In 2015 Iyad Burnat received the James Lawson Award for Achievement in the Practice of Non-Violent Conflict.  He is the brother of the director of the Oscar-nominated film “Five Broken Cameras” which chronicles the struggle in Bil’in.  Iyad is touring the UK and Ireland in September to present his new book “Bil’in and the Non-Violent Resistance” and we are very pleased that he has included Guildford in his itinerary.
