Come join us for an informative evening commemorating Al-Nakbe for the free screening of the documentary "Radiance of Resistence". The documentary is a winner of Best Documentary at Respect Human Rights Festival in Belfast, Northern Ireland (2017), focusing on the young struggle of Palestinian activists Ahed and Janan Tamimi.
Ahed Tamimi is a Palestinian activist from the village of Nabi Salih in the occupied West Bank. She is best known for appearances in images and videos in which she confronts Israeli soldiers. Tamimi's supporters consider her a symbol of resistance against Israeli occupation in the West Bank, and a courageous advocate for Palestinian autonomy.
In December 2017, she was detained by Israel...i authorities for slapping a soldier. The incident was recorded on video and went viral, sparking international interest and debate. Tamimi was sentenced to eight months in prison after agreeing to a plea bargain.
Janan Ayad Tamimi is also from the village of Nabi Saleh and the cousin of activist Ahed Tamimi. She began reporting on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict when she was seven years old after two of her family members were killed, inspired to document the conflict in a way that media outlets and news corporations had not. She has been called "The Youngest Journalist in Palestine" and is referred to as one of the youngest journalists in the world.
