Dr Awad Abu Freih is a Bedouin from Al Araqib, a village demolished 28 times since July 2010. He will speak about Israel’s little reported ‘war’ against the Negev Bedouin, who have been hounded from land they have lived in for hundreds of years. Forced to relocate to huge townships, rife with poverty, unemployment and crime, the Negev Bedouin have seen their land stolen to enable the establishment of Jewish settlements, agricultural projects and forests. Dr Abu Freih coordinates a group ‘Recognition Now’, which brings together Bedouin, Jewish and international groups who are campaigning for Bedouin land and civil rights.
