Spotlight on human rights in Palestine: PROGRAMME

CNJ adThe human rights situation is so serious in Palestine that we have decided this year not just to hold an event on Human Rights Day (10th December) but to work with a number of partner groups and hold events that each focus on a different human right that is systematically denied to Palestinians. There will be in-person events, Zoom events, street events and a final Zoom event on 12th December which focuses on actions to promote human rights, to which we will be inviting speakers from a number of organisations and having an open discussion.  Special meal on Human Rights Day itself,. On 10th December, we are delighted to host Dr Abdifattah Abusrour from the Arrowwad Centre in Aida Camp, Bethlehem, at a Cafe Palestina supperclub, and we invite you to join us – please book in.
