Meeting with Palestine-based photojournalist Abed Quisini
The NUJ London Independent Broadcasting and New Media Branch and NUJ London Photographers Branch, in conjunction with the "I'm a Photographer not a Terrorist campaign, are hosting Palestine-based photojournalist Abed Quisini, who is visiting the UK this month.
Abed will be discussing the challenges he has faced working as photojournalist for 17 years in the occupied West Bank and showing an array of his work.
Palestinian journalists face immense difficulties in operating in Middle East. Last year they suffered more than 200 attacks from Israeli authorities, with 17 killed during the Israeli bombardment of Gaza last summer.
The NUJ has been a major campaigner in highlighting the plight of Palestinian journalists, in tandem with our sister union the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate.
"I'm a Photographer Not a Terrorist" has campaigned for the rights of photographers to do their jobs without fears of police harassment or being targeted as "terrorists" by the state - something Palestinian journalists are all too familiar with.
