Manal Tamimi is an internationally renowned Palestinian activist from the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, a village whose land is being gradually stolen by the Israeli state. Along with other villagers, Manal organises peaceful resistance to the occupation, including non-violent demonstrations against Israel’s land theft.

On International Women’s Day this year – 8 March – Manal was dragged from her home in front of her family by Israeli soldiers. She was beaten and detained for three days in Israeli custody. She has twice been shot by Israeli forces opening fire on peaceful demonstrations, and needed hospital treatment.

Manal Tamimi's speaking tour is part of Nakba Week of Action, a series of events taking place around the UK, including film screenings, concerts, new campaigns and actions and meetings with other speakers.
