My father was Palestinian, I was born in exile London. Due to the Nackba of 1948, my family are spread throughout the world. I never got to meet many of them. I grew up with a strong sense of political awareness and social justice.
I have taken part in many campaigns including CND, the anti apartheid movement, anti poll tax campaign and various environmental issues.
In my professional life, I have taught special needs students, organic horticulture and later went back to college to study nature conservation. As a result I worked for the Isle of Wight Council managing a Country Park as a Countryside Ranger involving environmental interpretation and practical nature conservation.
I have long been passionate for a free Palestine, and recognize that our sacred right of return is legal under international law and is key to global peace. I have no doubt that the outcome of the Palestinian cause will determine the future and quality of life for all humanity.
I am proud to be working as the Press Secretary UK for the charity WWR-Help. WorldWide Resistance-Help e.V. . In particular, as unlike many charities, all who work do so without taking any a wage. This is the essence of real charity and ensures that no deductions are taken from any donation which means 100% reaches those most in need. God knows Gaza has suffered 3 genocides and over 11 years of a brutal illegal siege and is now facing the abyss…. Your help and donation is needed now more than ever!
