LIFE IN PALESTINE UNDER OCCUPATION
THERESE MUGHANNAM & SUSAN RAHMAN
One of the most troubling humanitarian and political dilemmas, in our world full of humanitarian and political dilemmas, is that of Palestinians who live under Israeli occupation. Depending on our source of news about the Middle East we may have little or no information about the conditions that Palestinians endure.
Our presenters will offer first hand descriptions in word and picture of these conditions. Therese has long been an active member and leader of North Coast Coalition for Palestine. Susan is a Sociologist and is a professor at College of Marin. Both have family connections in Palestine. Both have traveled to Palestine and have experienced for themselves the restrictions imposed under occupation. Susan, in her doctoral dissertation, examined Palestinian women's resistance to occupation and will share some of what she learned. We are fortunate to have these two women, Therese and Susan, with us for this important Hot Topic. Please join us after the 11 am service in the Board Room.
We invite you to bring whatever you would want to eat.
