Speaker from Hebron Women’s Co-operative

July 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Laila Hasan, of the Palestinian Fair Trade Co-operative Women in Hebron, will be speaking about life in occupied Hebron and the work of the women’s co-operative in resisting the Occupation.

The cooperative was established in 2005 as a means of creating work for unemployed women in the Idna district of Hebron.  They make beautiful hand embroidered traditional and contemporary products that they sell in the Old Hebron market.  In doing so they create work and hope for some 120 women and their families.  It is an inspiring story of grass roots, peaceful, resistance to oppression.

Laila will be bringing embroidered items to show and sell.

All welcome
