Against the Wall: The Art of Resistance in Palestine

-We had about 30 people at this event. Mostly members of MECR, although there were about 5 new people who sat and watched at least some of the presentation. Will Parry gave an amazing talk, and his analysis of the wall art adds another layer to our understanding of how apartheid works in the West Bank.

Potluck at Pia's House

15 of us gathered at Pia's house for a potluck and a political discussion about Israel/Palestine. Many in the group have visited Israel, the occupied West Bank, Jordan and Egypt. We talked about our individual motivations as well as our commitment to bringing human rights to all peoples in the Middle East. A fine night of good food and lively conversation.

We want to hold these potlucks monthly as a way to consider broader issues and to build group solidarity.
