The Madison-Rafah Sister City Project

November 8, 2023
Emergency West Bank Online Fundraiser

Join us this Wednesday for our next webinar of Solidarity Speaks, an emergency series giving people around the world a forum to hear directly from Palestinians and Israelis calling for an immediate ceasefire and an end to collective punishment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Life in the last weeks has become nearly impossible for Palestinian communities in Area C. They are experiencing dramatic escalations of settler violence, severe military lockdowns, and frightening threats to forcibly expel them from their homes.

Settlers have taken up arms, given to them by Israeli state officials, and are dressed in army uniforms, making it almost impossible to distinguish between settlers and soldiers. All aspects of life have effectively been shut down for these communities. Under this unlivable reality, many Palestinian families have already been forced to flee. Join us for an emergency fundraiser to materially support communities facing one of the largest mass expulsions of Palestinians since 1948.

We will be joined on Wednesday by Ali Awad and Awdah Hathaleen, two long standing advocates against the expropriation of Palestinian land in Masafer Yatta and for the collective rights of their communities in Area C.

Register here for the emergency fundraiser.

Wednesday, November 8th:
8PM Jerusalem, 7PM Berlin, 6PM London, 1PM NYC, 12PM Madison

Please help us spread the word and share this emergency webinar series with relevant activist, faith, and learning communities. We know many people are looking for perspective in this moment of urgency and want as many people as possible to hear directly from Palestinians and Israelis calling for justice.

This is an emergency fundraiser for Palestinian communities in Area C defending their lands from military incursions, settler militias, and displacement.
