Non Violent Resistance In Occupied Palestine


Violent resistance by Palestinians is always headline news. But this illustrated presentation tells another story: of brave and resilient non-violent resistance in the Hebron area of the West Bank.

We all know about the Suicide Bombers don’t we? We’ve all seen the news footage of rocket attacks on Israelis, and Palestinians blowing themselves up in nice suburbs. We know about resistance in the Holy Land, and it’s violent, right? There is another untold story that rarely makes the news. Maureen Jack has been part of Christian Peacemaker Teams for many years, and served with them both before and after the invasion of Baghdad in 2003, and now in the Hebron area of the West Bank. After all the blood on our screens, you owe it to your eyes to come and see the footage of this brave and resilient nonviolent resistance.
