Forum: The Balfour Declaration

  • The New International Bookshop 54 Victoria Street Carlton, VIC, 3053 Australia (map)

The Balfour Declaration: 100 years of colonialism and resistance

The Balfour Declaration was an exceedingly brief statement, consisting of a mere 67 words, but its consequences have been profound, pervasive and catastrophic for the Palestinian people. As Israeli historian Avi Shlaim has observed “its impact on the subsequent history of the Middle East was nothing less than revolutionary”.

On the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, Melbourne's Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid invites you to join for a public forum to discuss the history of the declaration, its ongoing legacy and impact on Palestine and the Middle East.


  • Noura Mansour - Palestinian educator and activist
  • Jameela Jubran - Palestinian activist
  • Kim Bullimore – Political researcher in settler-colonial histories and long-time Palestine solidarity activist
