This report from Brighton PSC about the visit by young musicians from Gaza is well worth reading!  They are hoping to organise another visit in June which might include our own event.

Report on June 2016 visit of 4 young musicians from Gaza and their teacher


 

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.

 

Sahar Vardi is a young Israeli woman who was conscripted to the country’s Defence Force at the age of eighteen but reused to serve because of her opposition to its military occupation of Palestinian land and was therefore imprisoned as a conscientious objector. She informed us that there was not really contact between Israeli Jews and Palestinians on the basis of common social intercourse, which is underlined by the fact that Palestinians working in Israel are for the most part confined to menial and manual work. ( In the occupied territories contact between the two is almost non-existent, except for the relationship of coloniser and colonised.)

West Surrey PSC would like to place a bulk order for books, which we can then offer at a reduced price of £15 per book (usual price £20) and they would be signed by the author.  If you would like to purchase a copy of the book, please place an order with us via email reply by Friday 30 September.

Below is a message from Iyad:

Subsequent to my update yesterday regarding my failed visa application; which I will be appealing, I was wondering if you would be able to support me with the following? In anticipation of my book tour that documents our experiences in Bil’in; I arranged for 2000 copies to be printed; which I hoped to sell at my talks and settle the printing cost on my return from my tour. Unfortunately, given the UKs unfair decision to deny me a visa, I have been placed in a difficult financial position and I wondered if any of you would be so kind as to support me by purchasing ahead of what I hope will be a future book tour, a copy of my signed book and sharing this request with any appropriate, interested people you might know. The books are £20 each; however, should they be purchased in batches of 10 they will be £15 each and it might be that some might like to purchase some for their respective groups. It is difficult to express how disappointed I am that I will not be visiting the UK in the next couple of weeks, but am confident that with support from yourselves I will be successful in my next application. Many thanks for your solidarity as always, without which it would be impossible to move forward in our quest for freedom.
