This will be an informal opportunity to meet and share a continental breakfast with --

Fayez Audeh Al-Taneeb, Coordinator for the Farmers Union in Tulkarem, West Bank and Coordinator of the Stop the Wall Campaign.  He worked his own land until driven from it by the Israeli Army to make way for the Wall.

Find out what it is like to live under occupation and how the labor movement has stepped in to try to meet the basic needs of people for food, medical care, education and shelter.

Learn about the critical situation of working people in Palestine, the erection of an Apartheid wall by Israel, the crisis in leadership of the Palestine Authority and the prospects for the future in light of the disintegration of the peace process.

The delegation's Bay Area appearances are being organized by the Labor Committee for Peace & Justice in cooperation with community and solidarity movement organizations. This event is hosted by the San Francisco Labor Council to afford its affiliates, their members, and others in the labor community to learn more about the crisis in the Middle East.  For more information, contact 510/594-9575 or write to labor-for-peace-and-justice@igc.org .
