Frome Friends of Palestine talk

Hebron is one of Palestine’s most challenging cities.

Home to a quarter of a million Palestinians, a tiny elite of less than a thousand militant zionist settlers do all they can to make life unbearable for the rest of the population, aided and abetted by the Israeli army.

The main street, al-Shuhuda, is barred to Palestinians though not to settlers or tourists, and residents have to clamber over rooftops to enter their own homes. Many of the settlers live – literally – above the town, and shower the people below with detritus and worse.

Ray Packham, treasurer of Bradford on Avon friends of Palestine, and a recent volunteer teacher of English in Hebron, will give a talk on the situation there.

This talk will take place at St Catharine’s Hall, Park Road, Frome (BA11 1EU) on Thursday 19th March, 7.30pm. £3 – Proceeds go to bringing the Freedom Theatre of Jenin to Frome.
