Unliveable Gaza –                                                  ecological crisis versus food sovereignty

Speaker Eurig Scandrett  Author Friends of the Earth International report ‘Environmental Nakba’

7.30  pm Thursday 23rd March

Friends Meeting House – 10 St James Street Sheffield    S1 2EW

“Three Israeli military operations in the past six years, in addition to eight years of economic blockade, have ravaged the already debilitated infrastructure of Gaza, shattered its productive base, left no time for meaningful reconstruction or economic recovery and impoverished the Palestinian population in Gaza, rendering their economic wellbeing worse than the level of two decades previous.

“The most recent military operation compounded already dire socioeconomic conditions and accelerated de-development in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, a process by which development is not merely hindered but reversed.”  UN report on Gaza

Eurig Scandrett is Co Chair of Friends of the Earth Scotland.  He is a campaigner as well as an academic.  We are very fortunate to have him in Sheffield.   Come along, bring a friend.
