Ann Davison spoke about her experiences of life under the Occupation as an Ecumenical Accompanier to a big audience in St Mary's Church Frensham on 4th March. The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel is an international, ecumenical programme that recruits and despatches observers (Ecumenical Accompaniers) to Palestinian towns and villages to monitor the interaction between the Palestinian inhabitants and the Israeli military. The presence of EAs is intended to offer protection and to moderate friction. Abuses of authority are monitored and reported and EAs speak publicly of their experiences.
