A Day for Peace and Justice in Israel/Palestine
Sunday, June 6th 2004 2:00-8:00
Portland, Maine


June 5 is the 37th anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. All speakers have recently traveled in Israel/Palestine and will show video or photographs. At 3:30, keynote speaker Dr. Alice Rothchild, Boston physician, will speak on her recent trip with the Jewish American Medical Project. Her speech is entitled "Report Back: A Personal Look at the Health and Human Rights Consequences of Violence and Occupation on Israelis and Palestinians." William Burke traveled with Christian Peacemaker Teams in the West Bank and Iraq; the centerpiece of the Rev. Marjean Bailey’s trip was a conference sponsored by Sabeel, an ecumenical grassroots liberation-through-non-violence movement among Palestinian Christians. There will be time for questions after each presentation.

Also featured are a Middle Eastern dinner at 5:15; Maine artists exhibit; a Middle Eastern debke (line dance) will be taught; the video "Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land" will be shown at 6:15 followed by discussion.
