Gaza Strip Workshop at Chalice UU Congregation
Circumstances in the West Bank and Gaza were difficult even before Israel’s January invasion. How has the invasion changed things? What are the humanitarian consequences of the recent military action, and what can be done to improve the lives of those suffering?
On Saturday, May 23rd from 7-9PM, Chalice UU Congregation and the Social Justice Committee invite you to a workshop, “Perspective on Gaza: an Eyewitness Account,” presented by Marie Kennedy of Grassroots International. Through partnerships with community-based organizations in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip) and Israel, Grassroots International helps to provide essential services, to advance rights to land, water and food, and to support the Palestinian struggle for self-determination and peace with justice.
As a representative of Grassroots International and a member of the Code Pink delegation to Gaza, Marie Kennedy recently spent three weeks in Gaza, the West Bank, and Israel. Her group is one of the few to get into Gaza since the invasion. She will share photos and discuss how widespread physical and human destruction in Gaza plus a tightened Israeli clampdown in the West Bank are creating an increasingly desperate situation in the Palestinian territories.
There will be ample time for audience participation.
Chalice is located at 2324 Miller Avenue in Escondido. For more information, contact Morgana Mlodoch at (760) 213-1852 or EMAIL to MORGANA. Please RSVP for childcare to Paula Gonzales at (760) 737-0393 or EMAIL to OFFICE MANAGER.
