Using Water As A Weapon: How Israel Uses Water to Oppress Palestinians

April 20, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

At a time when Israel controls 90% of groundwater aquifers in the occupied West Bank and each Israeli consumes as much water as four Palestinians, water has become an important lens through which to understand the pervasiveness of Israeli oppression of Palestinians. Nidal Al-Azraq, executive director of non-governmental organization 1for3.org, will join us in a conversation on the human right to water and the restriction of this natural resource as a tool for continued military occupation.

Nidal Al-Azraq is a Palestinian refugee who was born and raised in Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem, occupied West Bank. He is the former director of Lajee Center, a youth organization in the camp.

NON-PIZZA LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED!

Nidal Al-Azraq, executive director of non-profit organization 1for3.org, will discuss the human right to water and how water is used as a political tool to fortify Israeli occupation of the West Bank. 1for3.org develops sustainable water projects in Aida Refugee camp in the occupied West Bank, Palestine in collaboration with Lajee Center, the Tufts University WSSS Program and Medical Missions for Children.
