The San Jose Peace and Justice Center announces its first annual Gertrude Welch Peace and Justice Award.Added to the calendar on Sunday Jan 24th, 2010 9:32 PM
The award for 2010 will be shared by pioneers of the Free Gaza Movement: Greta Berlin, Paul Larudee, and Kathy Sheetz. Greta and Paul are the co-founders of the Free Gaza Movement, and Paul and Kathy are local activists, all of whom courageously sailed in August 2008 on the first small fishing boats to break the decades-long Israeli siege of Gaza.
The awards ceremony will be followed by a reception / potluck dinner.
After dinner, a fundraiser will be held for the planned sailings of the Free Gaza Movement and the Free Palestine Movement.
Sharat G. Lin will speak on "The siege of Gaza and why Gaza is a key to peace between Israelis and Palestinians."
Donna Wallach, Darlene Wallach, Greta Berlin, and Paul Larudee will tell about their experiences in Gaza and plans for future sailings to break the siege.
