Palestinian activist cultural centre in Toronto leaving 'on high note'


(MENAFN) "Palestine is at the root, but the tree is global justice."

In detail, that's how Robert Massoud describes Beit Zatoun, a gallery and activist space that he founded nearly seven years ago to bring social justice struggles and human rights issues from arounds the world to Toronto.

The name, "House of Olive" in Arabic, is a nod to Massoud's own Palestinian heritage, and the olive served as the perfect symbol to bring the issue of Palestine to North America, Massoud explained.

"The olive tree is ubiquitous in Palestine; it's everywhere," Massoud told Middle East Eye earlier this month.
