Discussion and report-back about the July delegation to Palestine that was organized by the Center for Jewish Nonviolence (CJNV). It was a group of 50 Jewish activists following the direction of outstanding Palestinian partners in their "existence is resistance" struggle for liberation. The trip worked with partners in Hebron, Silwan in East Jerusalem, Bethlehem and with the Bedouins of the south Hebron Hills.
Donation hat will be passed and will be shared with our Palestinian partners, CJNV and the Alan Blueford Center for Justice. Here is a link to a photo album from the trip. The presentation on Sept. 28 will NOT be a mere re-showing of these images. I would describe my first trip to Palestine in ten years as upsetting and inspiring, chilling and touching, profound and pathetic. The oppression and dispossession are worsening in the weeks since my return, so I am compelled to share about it any way possible, as soon as possible, as much as possible. Get in touch if you want more references, or if you want more details, or if you want to set up something more.
Here is a link to an August 20 radio interview with me by Tangents Radio's Dore Stein on KALW about the CJNV trip. Tangents is dedicated to genre-blending, cross-cultural music. Each week, Dore's show includes a segment called "Gaza Corner" that has news from the Middle East. I was a rare guest in studio. Go to the link and scroll down to August 20. I also got to pick and introduce a couple of songs as a musical interlude, so it was also the debut of my alter-ego, dj-i-m!
