Join us for this fascinating talk by Ann Farr. Ann is a member of Pax Christi and has spent three months on the World Council of Churches Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel which, in Britain and Ireland, is managed by Quaker Peace and Social Witness. Palestinian goods will be for sale. This event is part of the World Week for Peace in Palestine and Israel.

Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs) provide protective presence to vulnerable communities, monitor and report human rights abuses and support Palestinians and Israelis working together for peace. When they return home, EAs campaign for a just and peaceful resolution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through an end to the occupation, respect for international law and implementation of UN resolutions.
