Eye witness accounts from West Bank come to Winchmore Hill
Can there be a just peace in the Middle East? Winchmore Hill Quakers host a fascinating talk on the situation in Israel-Palestine from Ali Morgan, who has recently returned from the West Bank.
This free event is Tuesday June 10 at 7:30 pm, Winchmore Hill Meeting House, 59 Church Hill, Winchmore Hill N21 1LE. All are welcome.
Ali will cover the following points:
What is daily life under occupation really like?
What does international law say?
How has this situation come about?
What is the Israeli peace movement doing?
What is Britain’s historic responsibility and what can we in Britain do to promote a just peace between Israelis and Palestinians?
Ali is part of the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI). EAPPI places trained individuals from many faiths and 20 countries on the ground to observe the human rights situation. They accompany local communities in their daily lives, reporting human rights violations and supporting Palestinians and Israelis in their non-violent efforts for a just peace.
Churches Together in Britain and Ireland asked Quakers in Britain to manage the UK programme of EAPPI. Since the C.17th Quakers have been committed to the peaceful and just resolution of conflict. The programme has been endorsed by among others, the Methodists, Baptists and URC, by a large majority in the Church of England Synod, and by agencies such as CAFOD and Christian Aid. EAPPI is committed to non-violence and impartiality.
