This is an opportunity to learn about Yalla co-op, the work that they do and context from Gaza. Co-organised with’s new International working group who will be giving context and talking about why this matters for UK cooperators interested in mutual aid and worker co-op solidarity across borders.

Hi! This is Lina from Yalla! A Palestinian developer, currently based in Turkey. I would love to share more about the event

We are planning to cover these topics in an Open Discussion!

  1. How did you start Yalla?
  2. Why choose Palestine? How has this decision changed your perspective on Palestine in general, and Gaza in particular?
  3. What are the local perceptions? How do people view working with the outside world, especially given that Palestine has been under blockade for the past 17 years?
  4. Why are cooperatives operating across Palestine important, and how do they differ from cooperatives elsewhere?
  5. How does remote work impact Palestinians, particularly in a cooperative setup? Why is it crucial to find opportunities?
  6. How has our cooperative model been affected by events in Gaza?
  7. What are other ways to support Gaza beyond fundraising?

Excited to see you all.
