Report Back from Palestine/Israel;
Lisa Nessan and George Cadman will be jointly presenting a talk on their experiences in Palestine/Israel while working with the International Solidarity Movement. The ISM is a Palestinian-led movement committed to resisting the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land using nonviolent, direct-action methods and principles. Founded by a small group of activists in August, 2001, ISM aims to support and strengthen the Palestinian popular resistance by providing the Palestinian people with two resources, international protection and a voice with which to nonviolently resist an overwhelming military occupation force.
Lisa Nessan is a Jewish American activist and photographer who has lived in the West Bank much of the last three years. She supports Palestinian and Israeli efforts to end the Israeli Occupation of Palestine through nonviolent direct action. Lisa has recently returned from Palestine and will present some of her photos of the Israeli separation barrier and its effect on the lives of Palestinians.
George Cadman has hosted "Peace Talks", a political talk show on Free Radio Santa Cruz, for the last seven years. She has conducted many interviews with professors, authors, journalists and peace activists on the conflict in Palestine/Israel. George and her sister traveled to Palestine/Israel last November to volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement for three weeks. She will be showing her photos and describing her experiences there.
