Join us to hear Mohammed Tamimi, founder and director of HIRN Hebron International Resource Network (HIRN) speak about their amazing practical grassroots actions in support of Palestinians living in the South Hebron hills, where the Israeli Occupation and illegal settlements are most visible and aggressive.A well known activist in the Hebron and Bethlehem areas he is committed to non-violence and supporting local initiatives particularly in Hebron and the villages around, affected by issues including settler attacks, demolitions and displacements.
Every year HIRN responds to a huge variety of requests from communities and individuals either in Hebron itself, or in the often remote and vulnerable villages of the South Hebron Hills. These communities are often overshadowed by well appointed and heavily defended illegal Israeli settlements which have stolen their prime land and continue to encroach on what they have left. The settlers have their own roads, access to the national grid and constant supplies of water, access to all of which are denied to their Palestinian neighbours. It is partly for this reason that Amnesty International and other human rights organisations have designated Israel as an apartheid state.
Request from communities are usually for water tanks, prefab houses (or tents), additional school rooms, playgrounds, greenhouses, health centres etc. From individuals it could be anything – a lift for a disabled resident, a cochlear implant for a teenage boy – whatever it takes to enable families and communities to stay in their homes and on their land and, in some cases, to even return to their land in spite of the constant attacks from settlers and the ever present threat of eviction and demolition.Often the work has to be carried out at night and in record time to establish ‘facts on the ground’ and delay legal action. The variety and scale of work carried out with numerous partners is phenomenal.
So come and hear all about it!
Please come and join us on Saturday 17th September 2022, 12.00pm -1.30pm, outside Tesco Express, Hyde Road, Gorton, Manchester M18 8LD.
We will be talking to customers and explaining why we’re asking them to not buy Israeli apartheid produce. We will also be asking customers to place ‘ Boycott Israeli Apartheid’ stickers where such produce is on sale, to talk to the manager about such sales, and to sign a petition that will go to the manager.
We will have the Manchester Palestine Solidarity Campaign stall, with a variety of information, with the focus on Boycotting Israeli Apartheid.
