Linking together for human rights

A happy picture and a sad memory.

Jaffa group

A group of young people from Abu Dis at Dar Assadaqa during their dabkeh training session in 2017, training as a dabkeh team called Jaffa and hoping that CADFA would be able to take them to dance in London. At the front is Ahmed Eriqat الله يرحمه who was their dabkeh trainer. The photo is from Ahmed’s Facebook and says he is in Camden Town – They were actually at … Read More →

Oppose the annexation of the West Bank

نتياهو

Also see our resources page on annexation here. The dispossession of the Palestinians is a clear human rights issue. Since it began, Israel has been expanding further on to Palestinian land and ignoring the rights of the Palestinian people.  For many years, there has been a confusion between the hopes of “two staters” who thought that one day there might be a Palestinian state next to an Israeli one and … Read More →

Take the army from the schools.

school street

We are asking everyone to raise this issue with their representatives. Our Palestinian friends are asking for protection for their boys, whose education, health and future is being put at risk by the frequent provocation of Israeli soldiers at the gates of the three boys’ schools in town. There is no reason for the frequent presence of the army other than to provoke, and this report (here) is shocking. Please read … Read More →
