The workshop will begin with an overview of Palestinian history, from 9,000 BCE to the events of the first Nakba and a discussion of the mandate years, the first and second intifadas, and contemporary Palestine-Israel. This workshop will also describe the blockade, military assaults on the Gaza Strip, incidents of police brutality, the Israeli West Bank Barrier, also known as the Wall, and the experiences of Palestinians throughout historic Palestine, from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank.

This workshop will be recorded for archival purposes. However, the recording will not be streamed or made available otherwise. Furthermore, the recording will only include the speaker and the facilitators of the EGSC and TCC Collective.
