Jawaher,
Israel took your life,
we take up your struggle, dignity and courage

A call for women all over the world to unite behind the popular resistance and the determination of Palestinian women in defense of their land, rights and dignity.

While the world was celebrating a new year, Jawaher Abu Rahmah (34 years) died in a Ramallah hospital from poisoning due to teargas inhalation.

Jawaher was out in the fields on Friday, December 31 participating in the protest against the Apartheid Wall that strangles her village Bil’in, stealing its lands and livelihood. She had seen her brother killed in a similar protest almost two years ago when Israeli military shot him with a tear gas grenade in the chest, but this only intensified her dedication to her work with the youth that can carry on the resistance. It didn’t deter her from joining the protests. When the tear gas clouds reached her that day, she fell sick and died from the effects of the gas.

Just in case you haven’t heard about it, I want to let you know that BBC Radio 4 will, on Thursday of this week 13th January at 14.15 hrs, be broadcasting ‘Escape from Gaza’, by Ahmed Massoud and Justin Butcher,   the story of Ahmed’s journey to Gaza from the UK to visit his sick mother. It is the day’s Afternoon Play. If you can’t listen then, you will be able to get it via the BBC website and iPlayer for a week afterwards.

 

 

The reason I’m letting you know about this is that we often criticise the media for their coverage of the Israeli-Palestine situation; this sounds like a great opportunity to listen to a relevant programme and send the BBC the message that we like it (if we do, which I imagine we will) and we want more coverage of the Occupation – in drama, news and comment.

 

 

In haste – and good listening!

 


Ben White gave an excellent presentation about his book 'Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide' in Guildford last night. Over 30 people turned up for an informative talk even though traffic and parking was horrendous due to the Christmas lights being turned on. Lots of of Zaytoun produce sold, ICAHD Christmas Cards and copies of Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide. Buy the book {ln:nw:http://www.plutobooks.com/display.asp?K=9780745328874& 'here}
