Amena El-Ashkar


Amena El-Ashkar, a Palestinian refugee from Lebanon, will speak on the Nakba Tour at events across the U.S. and Canada this fall alongside Khawla Hammad, a survivor of the Nakba who was “16-years-old when she last lived in Palestine. That was 1948, when the Zionist militias drove her out along with her family and more than half the Palestinian population in Palestine.  Since then, she has lived as a refugee in Lebanon, with no citizenship in any country, and few rights.”
