A short story written by Ghassan Kanafani and read by John Berger:
Naji Al-Ali - Palestinian cartoonist frequently detained by police and continually censored. He received many death threats during his life. In 1987 he was shot in the head by a lone gunman as he was going to work, and died five weeks later at the age of 51. Handala, the little boy who appears as a spectator in each of his cartoons, is now the official logo of the Commission for Freedom and Justice Through Humor, a recently created arm of WATCH and an affiliate of UNESCO.
Edward Wadie Saïd - Palestinian American literary theorist, cultural critic, and an outspoken advocate for Palestinian rights. He was University Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University.
