Khury Petersen-Smith will discuss the historic nature of the outpouring of protest for a ceasefire in Gaza since the bombardment began there in October. He will also talk about the importance of the movement in pursuing a world where the rights of the vulnerable are protected and the dignity of all uplifted.

Petersen-Smith received his PhD from Clark University Graduate School of Geography, where he wrote a dissertation on U.S. military bases and protest movements against them in the Pacific. He lives in Boston.
