Memoirs of a Stolen Land: Campus Activism

Memoirs of a Stolen Land: Campus Activism

Campus activism in the United States has played a huge role in bringing attention to the plight of the Palestinians living under Israeli occupation.

Aimen Abdel, a Palestinian-American student at Loyola University at Chicago, is featured in the fourth episode of “Memoirs of a Stolen Land: Campus Activism.” He discussed how seeing so many other students working for the same cause is “very empowering.”

Abdel also spoke about the importance of student groups such as Students for Justice in Palestine [SJP] and the momentum those groups have gained.

“This is a very critical time for people living in the United States especially for Palestinian activists, because I really do think this is a time of change,” Abdel said.

For more information about what student activists in the United States have done during the past year, read about it in this Electronic Intifada article.

Make sure to check back to Palestine in America for the fifth episode of this powerful film series.

Zahra Haider, the producer of the video series, is originally from the Dallas metropolitan area.  She is now a sophomore at Northwestern University studying journalism and film. She is involved in Northwestern News Network and the Daily Northwestern.
