Public Meeting

Sunday January 14th

6.30 pm


                               The Balfour Declaration: Empire, the

                               Mandate and Resistance in Palestine.

                              

The author, academic and activist Dr Bernard Regan, will talk about his recent book on Palestine. He will discuss the implications of the Balfour Declaration (1917) for peace and politics in the Middle East.

Bernard Regan is an historian, trades unionist in education (NEU/NUT) a campaigner for human rights and member of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign and a powerful voice in the field of contemporary international relations. His new book is a powerful and well-reviewed analysis of one of the most enduring conflicts of the Middle East.

Glossop Labour Club welcomes everyone concerned about the peace and stability of the Middle East to this unique opportunity to listen to and question an authority on the topic.


ALL WELCOME
