The NUJ London Independent Broadcasting and New Media Branch and NUJ London Photographers Branch are hosting a talk with Nablus-based photojournalist Abed Qusini, who is visiting the UK this month.
Abed will be discussing the challenges he has faced working as a photojournalist for 17 years in the occupied West Bank and showing an array of his work.
Palestinian journalists face immense difficulties in operating in Middle East. Last year they suffered more than 200 attacks from Israeli authorities, with 17 killed during the Israeli bombardment of Gaza last summer.
The NUJ has been a major campaigner in highlighting the plight of Palestinian journalists, often in tandem with our sister union the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate.
“I’m a Photographer Not a Terrorist” has campaigned for six years on photographers rights, both professional and amateur, and is supporting the event.
News From Palestine will take place on Tuesday 23 June at 6.30pm at NUJ Headland House, 308-312 Gray’s Inn Road, London WC1X 8DF.
