Leila Khaled ... South Africa Tour

Leila Khaled South Africa Fundraising Speaking Tour

This February support BDS South Africa and dine with the remarkable living legend, Leila Khaled. Between the 5th and 14th of February 2014 Leila Khaled will be in several South African cities on a BDS South Africa Fundraising Speaking Tour.

Leila Khaled has been dubbed "the poster girl of the Palestinian struggle". Khaled's image flashed across the world after she hijacked a passenger jet in 1969 and made world history by becoming the first woman to hijack an airplane. The picture of a young, determined looking woman with a checkered kuffiyah scarf, clutching an AK-47, was as era-defining as that of Che Guevara, Ruth First and other political figures from our recent past.
