Middle East Monitor invites you to the book launch of Our Vision for Liberation: Engaged Palestinian Leaders & Intellectuals Speak Out, Dr. Ramzy Baroud’s new publication.
The event will include a panel discussion featuring the book’s co-editors Dr. Ramzy Baroud and a host of contributing writers Dr. Ghada Karmi, Founder of the Palestinian History Tapestry Project Jan Chalmers, and Co-Chair Jehan Alfarra. A selection of original embroidered panels from the tapestry, which tells the story of the indigenous people of Palestine through traditional Palestinian embroidery, that feature in the book will also be on display.
Join us for the launch of this extraordinary book which aims to challenge several strata of the current Palestine discourse that have led to the present dead end.
Drawing on their own remarkable personal experiences and successes – as archaeologists, artists, authors, community leaders, educators, filmmakers, historians, human rights activists, journalists, lawyers, spiritual leaders, political prisoners, and the like – the authors will address what now, what next is to be done, in a manner that reflects not only Palestinian aspirations, but their view of what is possible.
A book signing session will be held at the end of the panel discussion with Dr Ramzy Baroud.
Our panelists include Dr. Ramzy Baroud, Dr. Ghada Karmi, Founder of the Palestinian History Tapestry Project Jan Chalmers, and Co-Chair Jehan Alfarra.
Join us for free on Friday, 10 June 2022 at 6pm GMT (7pm UK).
Reserving a ticket does not guarantee entrance. Seats are allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis – once capacity is reached, we will not be allowing any further entries.

“The first-hand testimonies in this collection of essays send a clear message to the racist apartheid occupiers of Palestine: your attempts to obliterate us have failed. Here we stand….”
– JEREMY SALT, The Unmaking of the Middle East
“This book deserves a warm welcome. It celebrates the achievements of Palestinians and the rich diversity of their culture. Clearly, their spirit of resistance is alive and well. ”
