Leila Khaled South Africa fundraising speaking tour

This February support BDS South Africa and dine with the remarkable living legend, Leila Khaled. Khaled has been dubbed “the poster girl of the Palestinian struggle”.

For up to date information, please follow BDS SA on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/bdssouthafrica

Leila Khaled’s image flashed across the world after she hijacked a passenger jet in 1969 and made world history by becoming the first woman to hijack an airplane. The picture of a young, determined looking woman with a checkered kuffiyah scarf, clutching an AK-47, was as era-defining as that of Che Guevara, Ruth First and other political figures from our recent past.

“I have learned that a woman can be a fighter, a freedom fighter, a political activist, and that she can fall in love, and be loved, she can be married, have children, be a mother.”
