CHRISTIANITY

Within the churches we try to promote the Kairos document, a declaration made in December 2009 by senior Christian figures in Palestine. The introduction states “In this historic document, we Palestinian Christians declare that the military occupation of our land is a sin against God and humanity”. The document is available in several languages and you can read it HERE.

In August 2013 a British Christian response, Time for Action, was published and you can read it HERE.

In September 2021 the charity Christian Aid produced a report entitled Where is Palestine: a story of loss, inequality and failure.  “This report details the repeated violations of basic human rights, that Palestinians experience, drawing on Christian Aid’s decades of work with the poorest communities in the region and the expertise and experience of our partners. We show how the situation takes away the dignity that we should all be entitled to live with. You can read the report HERE.  

Closer to home, we give out THIS LEAFLET at the Christmas services of both Liverpool Cathedrals.

Our Silent Voices exhibition, documenting life in Bil’in, has shown in several churches and both Liverpool Cathedrals

We are often asked to provide speakers or exhibition materials for Church groups.

ISLAM

It is traditional for Muslims during Ramadan to break the daily fast by eating dates. We take this opportunity to urge a boycott of Israeli dates and to promote Palestinian dates.
