Linking together for human rights

Students’ links

IMG_4530CADFA has done a lot of work in the past few years with university students in the two countries, working to build awareness of each other, of the human rights situation in Palestine and to help with twinning links between student unions so that there is on-going communication.  The work done includes visits of students from Palestine to Britain and from Britain to Palestine, student speakers at universities, activities and demonstrations, student twinning conferences,  a website, some short films and a student book, ‘Look at our Lives’.

Several student unions have made formal twinning links at various times but due to the short length of people’s time as students, these need to be frequently renewed. CADFA and its EVS volunteers work to support student unions in such activities and to bring information on the human rights situation in Palestine to student groups throughout each academic year.
