In the Shadow of Balfour
On Wednesday 17th May 2017 at 7pm
Ben Jamal, Director of National PSC will be speaking at
Friends Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Central Norwich
 
Ben  will discuss how the Balfour declaration set the frame for Palestinian dispossession in the Nakba of 1948 and what is required from the British government now to fulfil its moral and legal responsibilities towards the Palestinian people.
 
Balfour initiated a policy of British support for Israel which continues to this very day, to the detriment of the occupied Palestinians of the West Bank and the five million Palestinian refugees living largely in warrens of poverty around the Middle East, including Israeli-besieged Gaza. No pride there, then!

VIGIL TO REMEMBER CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS TO
WAR
HAY HILL, NORWICH, MONDAY, MAY 15
TH
, 12-1PM
Whatever we may think about the wisdom of ghting wars as an
answer to disagreements between nations, we must acknowledge
the courage of many who fought in them. Each November, on
Remembrance Sunday, ceremonies are held to honour that bravery.
It takes great courage too to refuse to ght if you are convinced that
war is wrong, knowing that you risk disgrace, imprisonment, even
execution. And so, every year since 1982, 15th May has marked
International Conscientious Objectors’’ Day – commemorating those
who have resisted and who continue to resist war, especially by
refusing military service. Read more
