Canadian filmmaker and activist John Greyson, along with emergency room doctor Tarek Loubani, was arrested in Egypt in August 2013 while trying to access Gaza on a humanitarian mission. They were beaten and held without charges in a Cairo prison for seven weeks. An international campaign ultimately helped to secure the release of the two Canadians. John's sister Cecilia, residing in Halifax, was the media spokesperson during the ordeal. Now reunited, the brother and sister will share experiences about the crisis from both sides, reflecting on the politics of international justice and the implications of their experiences for social justice education.
