Dr Dalit Baum – Who Profits Project
Salwa Alenat – Kav LaOved organisation
Dr. Dalit Baum teaches Gender and the Global Economy at the Haifa University and Beit Berl college in Israel, and coordinates the ‘Who Profits from the Occupation’ project in the Coalition of Women for Peace. A feminist anti-occupation activist, she has been a co-founder of Black Laundry, the Community School for Women and the Coalition of Women for Peace.
In her talk she would discuss the grassroots research initiative “Who Profits”, present its mapping of corporate involvement in the occupation, and tell the story of specific discoveries and challenges in on-going campaigns.
Salwa Alenat works for Kav LaOved (Worker’s Hotline) a non-profit non governmental organisation committed to protecting the rights of disadvantaged workers employed in Israel and by Israelis in the Occupied Territories, including Palestinians, migrant workers, subcontracted workers and new immigrants. Kav LaOved is committed to principles of democracy, equality and international law concerning human and social rights. (A short 10 minute documentary will be displayed)
