Abbas Milhem is the Executive Director of the Palestinian Farmers Union and is now based in Ramallah, West Bank. He has persistently spoken against the plight of the Palestinian people, particularly farmers whose land has been occupied by the Israeli settlers.
He lost his close family members (family members of his wife) in Gaza. It is very difficult to ask people ‘how are you’, he says. Extremely difficult to explain things, the horrors that people particularly children and women have gone through.
He has been active in the Peace and Democratic movement and worked with various national and international organisations.
This conversation was recorded on January 4th, 2024 online and is now being placed in the greater interest of information and all those who wish to understand what is happening inside Palestine and what is a Palestinian point of view related to the crisis in Palestine and its future.

He wrote a piece on the next day of the Hamas attack on Israel. Understanding the grave historics situation between Israel and Palestine, the author had sought dialogue between the two sides.
