An Evening of Palestine Solidarity in the Wanstead Tap
Newham Momentum is organising an Evening of Palestine Solidarity on Tuesday 21 March, in the Wanstead Tap - see the attached poster for the event details.
Come and hear inspirational nonviolent activist Hamed Qawasmeh who will speak about the current situation in Palestine and how communities organise to survive and resists Israeli occupation.
Qawasmeh comes from the Palestinian Town of Hebron/al-Khalil which has seen the worst of the five decades long Israeli occupation. In Hebron quarter of a million Palestinians are dominated by 700 violent Israeli settlers living in an illegal settlement in the hearth of the Hebron’s Old City, with 3000 heavily armed Israeli soldiers insuring their impunity.
We will also have a pleasure to hear Leane Mohamed, a wonderful UK/Palestinian teen who won Jack Petchey 'Speak Out' award for her talk about her native homeland Palestine, only to be exposed to an onslaught of attacks and threats by the Zionists and their sympathisers.
Leane was the guest at the recent AGM of the national Palestine Solidarity Campaign and she inspired many with her determination not to be denied the right to speak out.
Members of the Waltham Forest PSC will run a stall with the information materials and produce by the Palestinian farmers, including a delicious Zeytoun olive oil, zatar, olive oil soap from Nablus etc.
Bring your friends and family!
Very much looking forward to see you there.
