6:00 pm - 7:15 pm
A PSC webinar looking at the situation of Palestinian workers in the time of Coronavirus, coinciding with International Workers Day.
Thursday 30 April 2020 – 6pm (London time)
Palestinian workers are facing the constant pressures of living and working under the Israeli military control of the occupation and siege. Covid-19 is presenting them with a new set of deadly challenges. This includes the almost complete closures leaving very little resources for the survival of the Palestinians behind the wall, checkpoints and trapped in the Gaza strip. Join us to hear how the current global health crisis is affecting Palestinian workers, and what we can do in solidarity, for justice and equality.
