What is the Defending Palestine conference?


We are thrilled to announce Defending Palestine: Liberating the People, the Land, and Animals, a three-day international conference hosted by Palestinian Animal League (PAL) at The Youth Village, in occupied Palestinian territory, from May 3 through May 6, 2018.

This will not be a traditional conference. It will focus on the shared struggle for land and liberation for all species in occupied Palestine.

We at PAL believe in equality and having the basic right for life. Your experience with us will be unique and filled with new beginnings. You will gain newfound memories, develop a strong network with fellow participants, and come away inspired to join this international movement. We will ensure that this conference transcends beyond workshops and talks. It includes tours to three cities that have been essential in developing our work and are important to see when visiting Palestine: Bethlehem, Jericho, and Ramallah.

If you would like to know more or are interested in applying for this critical, unique and unforgettable experience, please check out our website. Our platform is also open to anyone who would like to present, and if you would like to take the opportunity to help sponsor our conference, feel free to contact us at info@pal.ps.

We hope you will join our cause and experience Palestine and all of its life with us!
