Eye witness accounts from the occupied West Bank

WHAT is really going on in Israel and Palestine, and especially on the West Bank? There's a chance to find out first hand from a participant-observer today (Tuesday 6th August, 2-3pm) in the Persian Tent at St John's Church. 

Tricia recently spent three months in Bethlehem monitoring human rights and experiencing life under Occupation. She was there as an international volunteer with the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI).

On the West Bank ecumenical accompaniers monitor the checkpoint, witness the conduct of Israeli soldiers outside schools and visit outlying villages to find out about the difficulties that Palestinians face living in the shadow of illegal Israeli settlements.

The presentation and discussion is free, but you can book on Eventbrite here.
