27 Oct, PERTH: “Israeli Apartheid vs International Law” with Sarah Haynes September 30, 2009

Israeli Apartheid vs International Law
Perth local Sarah Haynes talks about defending Palestinian homes
WHEN: Tuesday October 27th, 6.00pm for a 6.30pm start
WHERE: UWA Social Sciences Lecture Theatre
ENTRY: by donation (all proceeds go to the ICAHD)
On Tuesday October 27th (details below) Friends of Palestine WA member Sarah Haynes will share her experiences of campaigning alongside Palestinians, Israelis and other international volunteers in the ongoing struggle to defend Palestinian communities from the ever-expanding reach of the Zionist colonial project.

After a brief historical overview Sarah will speak amongst other things about her participation in a peaceful demonstration against the apartheid wall in the West Bank village of Bil’in (which naturally enough came under tear gas attack by Israeli soldiers, a weekly occurrence in the besieged village); her involvement in a home-rebuilding program with the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions; and her arrest in the East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Sheik Jarrah for the grave ‘crime’ of attempting to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian family’s home.

The presentation will include a photo essay and there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion of the way forward for the Palestine solidarity campaign in Western Australia.  So please join us for this much-needed antidote to all the mainstream media nonsense currently doing the rounds about a renewed peace process and Israeli commitments to a settlement freeze.
