Event Description

Omar Barghouti is a Palestinian researcher, commentator, and human rights activist committed to upholding international law and universal human rights.

Her newest book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope, written with Denis Moynihan, gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power—and refusing to be silent.
