Seeds Association for Development and Culture supported by Sheffield Palestine Solidarity Campaign; Sheffield Labour Friends of Palestine and Scottish PSC invite you to a webinar:
Friday 16thJuly 5pm BST/7pm Palestine
Speakers: activists from Beita, Palestine and Sheffield
The village of Beita near Nablus in the West Bank is resisting Israel’s objective to fragment the Palestinian population into isolated cantons. An Israeli settler outpost is seeking to cut off the road between Nablus and Ramallah. Since 1967, the villagers have suffered 87 deaths in the face of live fire from the Israeli military. In May, two teenagers, Mohammed Said Mohammed Hamayel (16) and his friend Ahmad Zahi Ibrahim Bani-Shamsa (15) were shot dead by Israeli fire. Six people have been killed in Beita this year as Israeli war crimes against unarmed civilians escalate throughout Palestine.
Beita activists will give a first hand account of their struggle and discuss ways to link with the international solidarity movement to hold Israel accountable.
