Women of Palestine: living through trauma, building resilience

northern women for plaestineJoin us for a series of events dedicated to the women of Palestine for International Women’s Day. Our theme is Women of Palestine: Living through Trauma, Building Resilience”.

Through film, music, drama, poetry, workshops, photography and women’s personal accounts, we will explore the daily trauma of life for Palestinian women. We’ll also be celebrating how they survive and thrive against all the odds – supporting each other, their families and their communities, by being politically and creatively active.

Running for a week, from Saturday 5 March Sunday 13 March, this programme has been devised by Northern Women for Palestine, a group of activists from towns and cities across the north of England committed to campaigning for justice for Palestinians.

We will be starting this leg on April 25th  2016  where we finished last year, at Morvich; and we will be arriving at the end of our Right2Roam Walk, at John-o-Groats, on Saturday 21 May. The full itinerary is here.

Solidarity & fund raising walks along the R2R route (e.g. Bristol & Edale) are being organised for the final day

As in previous years,  there will also be a solidarity walk in Gaza, also the same day: we will all be with the people of Palestine in spirit even though they are unable to be with us.
