7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Friends Meeting House
This talk will attempt to examine how one group of people keeps another under quite formidable control, at the same time as stealing the ground from under its feet and explaining to everyone else that this is necessary in order to preserve its own security, for the most part retaining the support of so-called civilised society in the process. Annie & Paul will attempt to unravel the complex web of tactics, from daily military harassment, bombs and white phosphorus to administrative blind-alleys, social-fabric destruction and any number of arbitrary bureaucratic hindrances that are all used to encourage the Palestinians to leave, or if they refuse to go, to make them realise how unwelcome their presence is. Annie O’Gara & Paul Wimpeney from Halifax Friends of Palestine will be talking about these, and other forms of repression by the Israeli state.
