The following is the full invitation from the Center for Freedom and Justice:
The Second Conference of Palestinian and Israeli Women
To mark the
101st International Women’s Day
This is the second year that we, Palestinian and Israeli women, do not obey the unlawful and immoral apartheid laws imposed by the Israeli Occupation Governments on the Palestinians in the occupied territories. Our conference aims to preserve, maintain, and reinforce the Palestinians human rights under occupation.
This year we will again come together for a day of discussion and shared experiences. We will be presenting different viewpoints of our joint civil disobedience activities as part of the ongoing non violent popular resistance against the occupation.
We invite everyone who sees herself as a partner in our cause to attend the conference, and to play a part in the firm political covenant between us that we continue to maintain despite all those who wish to destroy it.
Saturday 10 March 2012
10:00 a.m. start – ends at 16:00 p.m
There will be full simultaneous translation – Arabic, Hebrew, and English during all discussions. A vegetarian lunch will be available.
The full program will be published and distributed closer to the date.
We look forward to see you there!
