Two meetings about Palestine upcoming

Sat. October 21 “Courageous Women of Resistance,” Bethesda Lutheran Church, 450 Whitney Ave.
Sat. October 28, Hala Jadallah speaks about her month in Palestine this summer as Israel tried unsuccessfully to put checkpoints at al-Aqsa, 2-4 p.m. Program Room, New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St.

“When the book is written on the end of Apartheid in South Africa, a most important chapter will be on the role of women in that struggle.”

— Govan Mbeke, a co-leader with Nelson Mandela in the ANC resistance movement

The same needs to be said of women throughout the world who with courage and unflagging determination work for justice and human rights in their communities. Women helped to bring clean water to Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota, and women were at the forefront of the encampment at Standing Rock, by the contagion of their spirit helping to build an international community of resistance.

Likewise in Israel and Palestine, in the refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank, in organizations such as “Bedouin Women for Themselves” and “Grassroots Jerusalem” women are helping to build a non-violent resistance movement. By refusing to be silenced or compromised by the militarism of settler colonialism, these women are speaking truth to power and in doing so, they are helping to bring enlightenment and engagement in the struggle to build a better and more peaceful future for their children.
