Gaza Calls: Canada Answers Video Conference, Nov. 26

Gaza Event PosterThe Canadian Churches and Church-Related Organizations Forum on the Middle East are sponsoring a video-conference on Saturday, November 26, to connect three prominent Palestinians and church representatives with over a dozen locally organized venues across Canada. A live video conference will take place in 20 locations across Canada.

After three wars and a decade of blockage, the opportunity to visit Gaza, or for Gazans to leave, has been difficult. This video conference will be a unique opportunity to help ensure that the issues faced by Palestinians remain in the
consciousness of Canadian churches and civil society.

The PCC is a proud sponsor of this event.

Times:
9:00 a.m. (Pacific)
12:00 p.m. (Eastern)

Speakers:
Suhaila Tarazi – director of Al Ahli Arab Hospital, Gaza
Sami El-Yousef – regional director of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association – CNEWA
Raji Sourani – Lawyer, recipient of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award and director of Palestinian Centre for Human Rights – Gaza
