He has been part of the wave of Yellow Vests protests that have forced French President Emmanuel Macron to freeze a fuel tax hike, as well as campaigns against Islamophobia and the fascist National Front, now known as Rassemblement national. He also writes on Middle Eastern politics, and is co-author of the pamphlet Syria–revolution, counter-revolution and war. Jad will speak on imperialism and revolution in the Middle East as well as fighting fascism and the far right in Europe.
