Hala Yacoub is a 24-year-old trainee lawyer at Al-Jubran Law Firm and a legal researcher at the Justida Legal Research Centre in Palestine. With a thourough interest in International Law, Hala actively engages in exploring the application of legal principles to advance the struggle for Palestinian liberation and promote a more just world. As a volunteer at Stop The Wall, she dedicates her time to advocating for the rights of Palestinians and raising awareness about the ongoing forms of oppression they face.
Israel has long attempted to ethnically cleanse Palestinians by using the occupied West Bank as a toxic waste dumping ground. According to Hala Yacoub, this reinforces why Palestine's liberation is also an environmental justice struggle.
