Invitation by Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh

Quick note to those in Palestine: Please join us at the AICafe on Tuesday 26 April at 7pm (Beit Sahour at Jadal Center) for a panel discussion about September 2011 Declaration of a Palestinian State

: What Should Activists Do? With Palestinian activists Lubna Massarwa, Murad Jadallah and Muhammed Mustafa, moderated by Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh.

 

Below is a link to a brief four minute video of sights and sounds from Friday and Saturday in Palestine. We had participated in the demonstration in Beit Ummar where soldiers tried to prevent farmers from getting to their lands. We were partially successful getting through the soldiers’ lines and entering one of the plots that is threatened near a colonial settlement.

Settlers dumped their sewage on 3 acres of land of Beit Ummar the day after our peaceful demonstration. In another sideline, we succeeded in helping a poor family cure their injured donkey (named Ra’d or Thunder); medicines donated by a Beit Sahour veterinarian. A day later we got the family a sheep and her baby lamb but soon found out we were not giving them a decent sheep (old, teeth missing) so we returned it and brought a far better sheep and her weaned lamb. The family will mget milk, butter and cheese now. The cost was nearly $750. $200 was already donated by a friend in the US. Let us know if you want to contribute to this or similar projects.
