Keynote Speech at the Shatat Conference, Vancouver
This week, Voice of Palestine features the keynote speech by Hanna Kawas at the opening plenary of the Palestinian Shatat Conference, held in Vancouver from May 3-5, 2013. Hanna talked about the long history of Canadian complicity in Palestinian dispossession and ethnic cleansing as well as the current federal government’s policy of unconditional support for Israel. He also discussed the bankrupt and collaborationist nature of the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah and the need for democratic and non-sectarian changes within the Palestinian movement.
