Painfull hope

Ali Abu Awwad | TEDxJerusalem

A bereaved palestinian, former prisoner and a non- violence activist talking about his peace work and his activities toward finding nonviolence solution for the israeli palastinian conflict.

Ali Abu Awwad is a Palestinian, non-violence activist born in Halhoul, Hebron, raised by politically active refugee family. Following his mother’s footsteps, Awwad became a member of Fatah and served 2 prison sentences for violent activism. During one sentence, a 17-day hunger strike granted him permission to see his mother. This success was a turning point, realizing the power of non-violent protest.

Awwad established a Palestinian center for non-violence and formed “Roots”, a group based in the West Bank designed to promote dialog between Israelis and Palestinians as a path to peace.
