Peace and Justice in the West Bank (19th March)

PEACE AND JUSTICE IN THE WEST BANK; 

                                                A TALK AT SHINE, Harehills Road:

                                                MARCH 19TH.   7.30.  

                                                by   TRICIA GRIFFIN.

 

The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel brings people

from various countries to the West Bank to experience life under occupation.

Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs) provide protective presence to vulnerable

communities; they monitor and report human rights abuses and they support

Palestinians and Israelis  working together for peace.

 

When they return home EAs campaign for a just and peaceful resolution to the

Israeli/Palestinian conflict through an end to occupation, respect for

international law and implementation of UN resolutions.  In the UK the

Programme is co-ordinated by the Quakers.  You can find out more at

Tricia Griffin went to the West Bank and worked as an EA from November 2012 to

February 2013.  Tricia will give a talk about what she saw and learned from her

time there on March 19th at SHINE, Harehills Road at 7.30.  The event will finish at 9.00pm.

 

The intention is to inform and to encourage discussion on the achievement of

peace and justice in the Middle East.    We are inviting people who we

believe will be interested to engage in that discussion to attend; people

who are ready to listen to and to respect the views of others.  If you are

interested do please come.   You can find directions on the SHINE website at

If you have any questions about the event please email Tricia Griffin  or Alan Wallace – details below.

 

The talk and discussion will be chaired by Cllr Roger Harington, Labour

councillor for Harehills and Gipton.

 

Thank you.
