As part of Right to Education Week, Columbia Students for Justice in Palestine will be screening two brief documentary films, "A Caged Bird's Song," which documents the effects of checkpoints on the daily lives of students and school staff in the West Bank in Palestine, and "Two Schools in Nablus: Learning to Die."
The screenings will be followed by a teach-in led by Dina Zbidat on issues related to educational access and academic freedom for Palestinian citizens of Israel.
Dina Zbidat is an MA Anthropology student at Columbia. She is Palestinian, from the town of Sakhnin in the north of Israel, and before coming to Columbia she studied at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem where she was a member of the Arab Students' Union.
