Community Discussion and Gathering
Sunday, September 22, 2013
Tamam Fine Palestinian Cuisine, 2616 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
RSVP required: email [email protected]
Join us for an evening of great food, important conversation and community discussion about the current stage of struggle for justice in Palestine.
On September 13, 1993, the Declaration of Principles, popularly known as the Oslo Accords, were signed in Washington, DC, by the Israeli state and the Palestine Liberation Organization. A new era of peace was hailed.
However, the reality of the Oslo accords proved to be much different, as the settler population in the West Bank tripled, thousands of Palestinians were imprisoned in Israeli jails, and the occupation – rather than ending – intensified, with the siege on Gaza, the building of the Apartheid Wall, and thousands of home demolitions.
Hanna Kawas, chair of the Canada Palestine Association and co-host of Voice of Palestine, will speak about the Oslo Accords, and what they meant for Palestinians – and what they mean today as new “negotiations” are pursued.
Please note: Appetizers will be provided! We encourage you also to order from Tamam’s excellent menu. Because we will be hosting at Tamam, it is important to know the number of people who will be attending. Please email us atboycotta[email protected] to confirm your attendance – thank you!
