Event Type

Waqas from Manchester Palestine Action recently spent 3 months in Hebron/Al-Khalil where he saw up close the horrors of Israeli occupation and the recent surge in violence. In the most shut-down area in Hebron/ Al-Khalil, Waqas was a witness to these crimes with the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) and will present his experience to us in Manchester.

Waqas in Palestine“I’m just an average guy from Manchester, who decided to find out what was going on over in Palestine. When I arrived in Hebron, I could not believe what I saw. I honestly thought it was a recent and maybe temporary situation. I was told Palestinians had been living under these severe conditions since 1994 and it has only got a lot worse since October. I could barely put up with the harassment, body searches and checkpoints, I have no idea how Palestinians manage to live under such conditions. Unfair, unjust, inhumane would be an understatement.”  Waqas
