Description

Breaking the Wall – How to Bring About Change in Palestine’

Activism and Solidarity, a Political Programme, or both?


ICAHD UK's annual conference will take place at Amnesty International's UK Headquarters on Saturday 11 May and will focus on the way forward for the international solidarity movement in promoting the end of Apartheid and democratization in Israel-Palestine. Should solidarity organisations adopt a defined political programme, or concentrate on activism and solidarity? Whose role is it to come up with a creative and just solution for Palestine? And what can be learned from past struggles?

In 2019 ICAHD UK brings together leading activists on justice for Palestine, academics and veterans of the South African anti-Apartheid struggle and other international solidarity movements, to discuss the lessons of the past, the challenges of the present, and the way forward to a just future.

ICAHD founder, Jeff Halper, will speak at the conference as part of a UK speaking tour, alongside Hisham Sharabati, a political activist from the West Bank and co-founder of the Hebron Defense Committee. ICAHD UK Director, Daphna Baram, will lead and moderate the central panel on Activism and Solidarity, a political Programme, or both? which will feature Jeff, Hisham, Naomi Winbourn-Idrissi (Jewish Voice for Labour), Dionne Gravesande (Christian Aid and the Global Justice Movement), Louise Regan (Palestine Solidarity Campaign) and Diana Neslen (Jews for Justice for Palestinians)

During the afternoon there will be a special panel, chaired by Linda Ramsden, the founder of ICAHD UK, dedicated to the participants in our camp, study tours and other events organised by ICAHD UK this year, considering their experiences and lessons learned 'on the ground' in Palestine.

The Conference will also feature award-winning public speaker, Leanne Mohamad, who will read the poem 'Resist, my people resist them' by Dareen Tatour - a poem that led to her imprisonment for five months for 'inciting terrorism' by the Israeli authorities - alongside some her her own work.

The fee for the Conference includes a conference pack, a buffet lunch and morning and afternoon refreshments - book before 31 March to benefit from special 'Early Bird' rates!

We hope to see you on 11th May!
