Who we are

Linking together for human rights.

IMG_5111CADFA works in the UK to promote awareness about the human rights situation in Palestine. Our link began in 2003 when people from the London borough of Camden made links with people in Abu Dis a town in the Jerusalem suburb. At that time, the Israeli Separation Wall was being built across Abu Dis itself: in 2004, the International Court of Justice found this to be a serious human rights violations and in breach of international humanitarian law.

CADFA was formed to promote human rights and respect for international humanitarian law, and 20150606_160659our main method has been to link people in order to build awareness and understanding and encourage people to be active in pursuit of human rights. CADFA itself was formally founded in October 2004, became a charity in 2005 which was registered in January 2006.

These links have strengthened over the years and we are very proud of the range of activities that our small organisation has been able to do and the broadening of interest around this work.

  Amplifying Palestinian voices
20150608_161928We work to bring Palestinian voices to the attention of people in the UK through publications (books, leaflets, films), public events, creative projects and the exchange visits we are now well-known for.

We work with our Palestinian friends to enable people in the UK to understand the human rights violations that the Palestinians face and to encourage them to campaign for human rights in Palestine as hard as they can – although more people in Britain do now know, the situation in Palestine is currently getting worse not better.

Whatever your skills, background or age, we encourage you to join our activities – See GET INVOLVED
