We have just been informed that Iyad Burnat, who was to talk about his book on non-violent resistance to the Separation Wall at our meeting this coming Monday, has still not been issued with a UK visa and will therefore be unable to travel to the UK in time for Monday's meeting unfortunately.  This is just one example of the daily challenges faced by Palestinians.  We very much regret having to disappoint everyone who was looking forward to hearing him speak and hope that he might still be able to visit Guildford at a future date.

We shall still be holding a public meeting as planned at the same time and venue (7.30 pm at St Nicholas Church Hall, Bury Street, Guildford).  There are two excellent documentary films about the non-violent struggle by villages in the West Bank against the building of the Wall through their land.  We shall show one of these films after consulting with the audience about their preference.

We hope that you will be able to join us for the film-showing and subsequent discussion.  There will also be the opportunity to purchase some Palestinian produce: olive oil, dates, almonds, maftoul, za'atar etc.
