From Gaza to Tahrir Square, The People's Resistance Lives!--Detroit Public Meeting and Book Signing With Editor and Co-Author, Joyce Chediac of New York
Joyce Chediac is the editor of the new groundbreaking book, "Gaza: Symbol of Resistance." She has been an activist and writer on Palestinian and Middle Eastern issues for many years. She recently travelled to Egypt to report on developments in the revolutionary movement that has swept the country and the region since the beginning of the year.
Her talk will analyze the Palestinian bid for statehood at the United Nations, the growing tension between the Egyptian revolution and the State of Israel and the impact of the Arab Spring on U.S. and Middle Eastern relations.
Chediac is a healthcare worker and a frequent contributor to Workers World newspaper based in New York. A book signing will follow the meeting.
