Leila Khaled, iconic Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PLFB) freedom fighter, speaks at a protest rally against the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit being held in Manila.
Khaled is in Manila along with several global activists to attend the just concluded 5th General Assembly of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle. She also represented PLFP in the formation of a new Filipino-Palestinian solidarity alliance aimed at campaigning for the liberation of Palestine against Israeli occupation.
Khaled successively took over two passenger airlines in the late 1960s to help launch their struggle to global prominence. She has since become one of the leading campaigners for Palestinian liberation.
Watch Khaled’s well-applauded speech at the anti-APEC rally.
