Give peace a chance!
PIEN's first webinar:
can you join us?
PIEN management committee member Stewart Mills has been engaged in peace and reconciliation work in Palestine and Israel for over 15 years. In January this year, he was part of a group of 22 Christians and Jews who toured Israel and Palestine together, including community lay and religious leaders from the Uniting Church, the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies and the Inner West Chavurah (a local Jewish community group in the inner west of Sydney)
The participants found it a "
profound, moving and one of the most intense experiences of their lives". They got to hear from over 50 high profile and grass roots speakers representing a wide range of perspectives on the conflict, including:
- Dr Rami Hamdallah, the Prime Minister of Palestine
- Mr David Keyes, Spokesperson for the Prime Minister of Israel
- Dr Mustafa Barghouti, Palestinian political leader and presidential candidate
- Dr Yossi Beilin, one of the architects of the Oslo Accords and a former minister in the governments of Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres and Ehud Barak.
Stewart will be speaking at our PIEN "webinar" to take place at 7pm AEDT, on Thursday 23rd March, 2017. The webinar will be a simple format, with Stewart speaking for approximately 20 minutes, followed by a time of discussion and questions. The webinar will conclude by 8pm AEDT.
All PIEN supporters are invited to join us - all you need is a phone!
