Course Materials

Morocco and Palestina

Dear all,

it was a pleasure sharing ideas with you. I attached the presentation and for the Spanish speaking people a comic about Palestinian history (I'm sorry there isn't an English version... but is easy to read and may help to improve your Spanish!).

I added in the last slide of the presentation some links to websites that you might find interesting. I write also my e-mail adress, don't hesitate to contact me for any questions or suggestions!

Thank you again for your interest and motivation, as I said this morning, although most of the time we can lose hope eny little action that we take against injustice is worth it.

I wish you a great time in Mallorca!

Cheers!
