please find below a video of my friend Rafeef Ziadah peforming "We teach life, Sir".
Rafeef is Palestinian refugee and activist, as well as a unionist and spoken word artist. She is a member of the steering committee of the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), as well as being a founding member of the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid (CAIA) which promotes the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestement and Sanctions (BDS) campaign in Canada and an organizer of the international Israeli Apartheid Week.
Rafeef was our key note speaker last year in Melbourne at the first national BDS conference to be held in Australia in October 2010.
