    SPSC are delighted to welcome four Palestinians from the Lajee Centre, Aida Refugee Camp, to Aberdeen.

    3 young people from the Centre will speak about their experiences as refugees and there will be discussion of the cause of political prisoners in Israeli jails and the incredible recent show of resistance which saw 2000 Palestinian prisoners embarking on hunger strikes. There will also be an exhibition displaying the photography of the young people of the Lajee Centre.

    Lajee Center ('lajee' means 'refugee' in Arabic), was established in Aida Refugee Camp in April 2000 by a group of 11 young people from the Camp who wanted to serve the community. Lajee is a community-based grassroots creative cultural centre that works with new generations of Palestinians as they continue their ongoing struggle for justice and rights for Palestine and all Palestinians.
