Next week I will return from a month in the West Bank. When I first arrived I was attacked by Israeli right media, calling for me to be deported from the country. Later, I was physically attacked by a violent right wing settler, causing me to obtain an order of protection.
Join me August 26-27 at CODEPINK’s Peace Camp in Sonoma County to hear more about my time in the West Bank and how you can get more involved in advocating for Palestinian rights!
Among the speakers for the Peace Camp will be retired U.S. Army Colonel turned peace activist Ann Wright. Ann will talk about her participation on the Women’s Boat to Gaza and how she arrested by the Israeli Navy in international waters as she attempted to reach the two million people living under Israel’s crippling siege. Palestinian American activist Nadya Tannous will talk about her work as the education and advocacy coordinator for Interfaith Peace Builders and Pakistani journalist Ayesha Khanwill talk about the challenges of reporting under occupation.
Join Ann, Nadya, Ayesha, me and others at CODEPINK's August 26-27 Peace Camp in Sonoma County.
The Palestinian solidarity movement is growing rapidly. But so are illegal settlements. Join us to learn about how to increase your local activism for justice in Palestine.
