At 8 pm on Monday (26/09) night in the United Church in Godalming Sahar Vardi will speak about her experience as a conscientious objector against her conscription to military service in Israel. She received a sentence of several months imprisonment for her action. Most talks on the Israel/Palestine situation deal with the subject in general terms whereas the subject of Sahar’s talk is highly focused and very unusual. However, conscientious objection to military service in Israel is increasing. I’m sure that Sahar would be willing to answer any questions you may wish to put to her.


The United Church is situated on the A3100 just past the Fire station and just before Godalming town bridge.
