Palestinian and Israeli Women Protest at Qalandia Checkpoint

2007 Women March at Kalandia

More than a hundred Palestinian and Israeli women gathered to protest the ongoing occupation and human rights violations in the Palestinian territories. Palestinian women who have lost their sons or not seen them in prison for years combined with Israeli women peace-makers to focus attention on these injustices and the high rate of violence against women from all arenas. Four women from the new Jerusalem team of the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme for Palestine and Israel joined the group as one of their first experiences with the program, and are looking forward to continue the journey learning about the situation here.
