The Separation Wall, army checkpoints, settler-only roads... Israel's occupation of Palestine is increasingly being referred to as Apartheid.
Join War on Want for the launch of Ben White's groundbreaking new book Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide and an inspiring evening of stories, images and testimony from Palestine.
Come along and:
- Hear Ben White talk about his book in a conversation with War on Want's Executive Director John Hilary
- Participate in an interactive audience debate and Q&A session with the author
- Hear from War on Want staff who have recently returned from Gaza
- Find out how you can take practical action in the UK to support Palestinians
Enjoy a free outdoor summer reception with drinks and Palestinian snacks!
*About the book*
Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner's Guide is a highly readable introduction to understanding the origins of the conflict and how apartheid applies to the situation in Palestine. Packed with information and resources, the book is rooted in the author's extensive on-the-ground experience in the region and is an indispensable guide for the Palestinian solidarity movement. Israeli Apartheid aims to inform and mobilise, and is a vital resource for anyone who wants to help work towards peace and end poverty and human rights violations in Palestine.
*About the author*
Ben White is a freelance journalist and writer specialising in Palestine/Israel. He also writes on the broader Middle East, Islam and Christianity, and the ‘war on terror'.
