Cancelled - Webinar: 'BEN EHRENREICH - The Way to the Spring: Life and Death in Palestine'
We are very sorry to inform that Thursday's talk with Ben Ehrenreich is cancelled.
We hope to arrange an alternative date for sometime in the future but nothing has been arranged as of today.
Over the past three years, American writer Ben Ehrenreich has been travelling to and living in the West Bank, staying with Palestinian families in its largest cities and its smallest villages. He has witnessed the extremes to which they are pushed, the daily deprivation and oppression that they face, and the strategies they construct to survive it - stoicism, resignation, rebellion and stubborn defiance. In The Way to Spring, he describes the cruel mechanics of the Israeli occupation and the endless absurdities and tragedies it engenders: the complex and humiliating machinery of the checkpoints, walls, courts and prisons; the steady, strangling loss of land that has been passed down for generations; the constant ebb and flow of deadly violence.
