Week 7: Discriminatory Practices Online Gathering

Week 7: Discriminatory Practices Online Gathering

We learned from those on the ground in Palestine who are fighting against the discriminatory policies that seek to divide Palestinians from one another. Our guest was Daoud Kuttab, a regular columnist for Al-Monitor’s Palestine Pulse and director-general of Community Media Network.
