The meeting was organised by the Surrey University Palestinian Society supported by the Surrey Islamic Society and WS PSC and held at the university. About 55 people attended.

Ilan Pappe is the reputed Israeli professor of history who was forced out of Haifa University in 2007 because his views were contrary to Israeli dogma and he supported the academic boycott of Israel. He is now at Exeter University.

 

Hosted by Debby and Paul  in Godalming, the objective was to raise funds for PSC. Splendid dishes were brought by the many who attended and it was a delightful evening. A generous total of £172 was donated, including some book sales, which it was agreed would be sent to PSC by the treasurer.

 


Gemma Houldey of Addameer speaking at St Nicolas Church Hall, Bury Street, Guildford Monday November 21 at 7.30pm.

ADDAMEER  Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association is a Palestinian non-governmental, civil institution that works to support Palestinian political prisoners held in Israeli and Palestinian prisons.

Beginner’s Guide to Palestine on 3 November


This was the first meeting organised by the recently formed Surrey University Palestinian Society together with the Islamic Society, held at the university.
Asa Winstanley is an investigative journalist and was based in Palestine from 2004 - 2007. Here is a link to his website if you are interested: http://www.winstanleys.org/. He is the editor with Frank Barat of “Corporate complicity in Israel’s occupation” (Pluto Press 2011). This is a very useful summary of the evidence presented at the London Session of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine in November 2010. A database at http://www.whoprofits.org contains much of the detailed information.
About 40 people attended and it was a basic background on what had happened in Palestine and how it all began. It was mostly aimed at people who wanted to know more about the situation who were not familiar with the facts.
