Iyad Burnat
Born in 1973 in Bil’in, Palestine, Iyad Burnat heads the Bil’in Popular Committee. Since 2005, citizens of Bil’in, joined by Israeli and international peace activists have held weekly non-violent demonstrations against the Israeli separation wall and the encroachment of illegal settlements. The protestors have maintained a commitment to non-violent resistance in the face of armed military opposition and have suffered many injuries and some deaths. The demonstrations are the subject of the 2012 Oscar-nominated documentary 5 Broken Cameras which was made by Iyad’s brother Emad Burnat.
