Peace@ThePub: Inside Occupied Palestine
Mark Weber, retired library director at Kent State University, will talk about his recent trip to Israel-Palestine this past May. The delegation was sponsored by Interfaith Pace Builders, Codepink, and Defense of Children International-Palestine. They delegates travelled throughout Occupied Palestine and spoke with human rights activists, aid workers, and Palestinians active in opposing the occupation. The delegates stayed with Palestinian families and also stayed in refugee camps that were more than 50 years old. They listened to Palestinian children, under the age of 16, talk of their experiences being held prisoner in Israeli detention centers for as much as one year. They also listened to Israelis and Druze soldiers who refused military service as part of the occupation.
