Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! presents: Leila Khalid: Hijacker

31 July @ 19:30 - 21:30

In 1969, Leila Khaled took part in a military operation by the   Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine’s Che Guevara commando unit, and seized a commerical plane to deliver an Israeli spy onboard to Jordinian authorities. She became the first woman in history to hijack a commercial airliner.
This documentary covers this and how, through the ensuing media bombardment, Leila Khalid brought the world’s attention to the Palestinian struggle and the PFLP’s focus on women’s liberation.
