*/Bil’in and The Nonviolent Resistance/*

Iyad Burnat is the coordinator for the Popular Committee in Bil'in, 
Palestine. For 10 years, Iyad and the Popular Committee of this small 
village have held weekly non-violent demonstrations against the 
confiscation of their land. They have repeatedly been met with violence 
by the Israeli military. Iyad is coming to the Boston area to describe 
what life is like under Israeli occupation, his village's ongoing 
struggle for justice and freedom, and what inspires him to continue 
non-violent resistance.

Iyad is the winner of the 2015 James Lawson Award for Achievement 
bestowed by the International Center for Nonviolent Conflict during its 
summer institute at Tufts University.
