Viva Palestina Arabia

George Galloway and Viva Palestina’s latest venture will bring “attention to the suffering of the Palestinian people and educate and enliven committed young people is the Summer University of Palestine, a vibrant mix of politics, culture and adventure in exotic Lebanon, spread over seven days this summer.”

The university will feature renowned speakers from around the world on Palestine, its past and potential future, the culture of the wider Arab region, Lebanon’s crucial part in it. There will be films, music, and workshops on a range of topics, from history to how to construct a successful campaign. There will also be media training in print and in television, utilising a state-of-the-art TV studio.

They said it was impossible but we did it, against overwhelming odds.

We organised and successfully delivered more than $5 million worth of humanitarian aid to the beleaguered people of Gaza. Three huge convoys, hundreds of vehicles, scores of volunteers, medical equipment, drugs, through dozens of countries, past cheering crowds but also in the teeth of opposition from the governments of some countries.

But it doesn’t end there. It cannot. While the illegal siege continues it’s our duty to do what we can to pierce the blockade and help relieve the suffering Palestinians. Which is why we’re launching Viva Palestina Arabia now.

You are closest to it, you feel it in your hearts, which is why I am asking you to help me, Viva Palestina Arabia and the starving, battered, but indomitable people of Gaza.

Please.

George Galloway

From Richard Hall:

The summer university will take place for one week each year at the campus of the International University of Lebanon in the Bekaa Valley. Galloway said many prominent international speakers were expected to attend, speakers such as Noam Chomsky, Norman Finkelstein, Naomi Klein, Fadwa Barghouti, and the wife of jailed Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti, Ibrahim Mousawi. These figures will give lectures, and plan the next 12 months of solidarity with the Palestinian people, according to Galloway.
