Tom Hurndall was a student at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU). He
was fatally wounded by the Israeli Defence Force whilst protecting Palestinian
children in Gaza. He died on January 13th 2004. Since 2005 MMU has hosted
a Memorial Lecture which has attracted prestigious figures willing to speak out
against what was done in 2004 and what is still being done now by the Israeli
State. For more details about this lecture and previous lectures, visit the Tom
Hurndall Memorial Lecture page on Facebook. The organising group for the
lecture is from MMU and Manchester University.
