A few weeks after an Israeli bulldozer crushed Rachel Corrie to death,
International Solidarity Movement activist Brian Avery was standing in the
Jenin refugee camp, arms raised over his head, wearing a reflective orange
vest, when Israeli soldiers shot him in the face at point-blank range. In
this unprovoked attack, the soldiers drove up to Avery and a fellow
nonviolent activist, and opened fire from their armored personnel carrier.
The heavy machinegun fire tore through Avery’s face and left him clinging to
life. Come have lunch with Brian, hear his story and his first-hand
perspective on the Israeli occupation of Palestine and prospects for peace.
