A report from returning local activists
Robert (Asher) Kirchner recently returned to Edmonton following three months in the Masafer Yatta district, south of Hebron, in the West Bank. He was living with Palestinian residents and participating in solidarity activities through the Centre for Jewish Nonviolence. He and other activists accompanied locals during shepherding and farming work and faced harassment from soldiers and settlers.
Robert and his partner Suzanne Gross will provide an overview of present realities for Palestinians; they’ll outline some recent decisions and actions by Israel which appear to test the ground for entrenching and expanding the illegal occupation. Their presentation will be followed by discussion to evoke responses which might promote positive and peaceful change in the region.
When: Sunday, July 17, 2022
Doors open at 12:30 pm for lunch and refreshments and a chance to reconnect with other network members. Presentation immediately follows.
Multi-purpose room, St. Paul’s United Church, 11526 76 Avenue, Edmonton
