"Report Back from Palestine"
with Michael Sonnleitner (PCC Peace & Conflict Studies)
Saturday, Nov. 13, 2010 2:30 pm
Westminster Presbyterian Church Fireside Room, NE 16th & Hancock

Please join Peace and Justice Works member Michael Sonnleitner for a "Report Back from Palestine" on Saturday, November 13 at 2:30 PM at the Westminster Presbyterian Church Fireside Room, NE 16th & Hancock. Sonnleitner is the Chair of the Peace and Conflict Studies program at PCC and a Fulbright scholar.

Palestinians live as second-class citizens, subject to the whims of the government of Israel, which has occupied the West Bank and Gaza in defiance of UN resolutions since 1967.

Sonnleitner visited Palestine for two weeks after a stint teaching Gandhian thought in India. After his presentation, there will be a Q&A session.

For more information, if your organization would like to cosponsor or endorse the November 13 event, or to get involved: call the Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group at 503-236-3065 or email us at iraq@ .

Additional note: Sonnleitner's talk is scheduled to take place after the Peace and Justice Works fall quarterly meeting, which begins with a vegetarian potluck from noon to 12:30 PM, with the meeting from 12:30 to 2:00, in the same location at Westminster Presbyterian Church.
