Newcastle upon Tyne
Sahar Vardi is a Jerusalem-based activist. She publicly refused her Israeli military service and was imprisoned in 2008. Since then she has been active with Israeli anti-militarist groups such as New Profile and today works as the Israel Program Coordinator for the American Friends Service Committee based in Jerusalem.
Sahar is part of Boycott from Within (a group of Israelis supporting the Palestinian call for boycott) and has been active with direct action groups such as Taayush and Anarchists Against the Wall. Today much of her activism is in Jerusalem in Palestinian led struggles against house demolitions, child arrests and discrimination of East Jerusalem.
She will speak for 30-40 minutes, followed by time for questions and discussion. This event is organised by Newcastle Palestine Solidarity Campaign, supported by Amos Trust.
