EAPPI Stands in Solidarity with
Alternative Information Centre
Located in Old Town Beit Sahur, the Alternative Information Centre is an Israeli-Palestinian Non-Government Organization that combines a political activist focus with research and analysis in order to give an alternative version of the conflict.
Their programs involve Palestinians and Israelis working together. They produce a number of books and pamphlets and a newsletter as well as a very good news site with videos.
One project of interest is their Bridges Instead of Walls: International Political Camp in Palestine and Israel. It is a one-week field seminar that provides participates with a deep understanding of the Palestinian and Israeli context and societies thus enabling more powerful advocacy on behalf of a just peace in the region. It creates a space in which the Palestinian people themselves explain their struggle and give direct witness to their life under occupation. This is a necessary step in understanding the factors in the present situation.
Our team plans to attend movie screenings and lectures here as our schedules allows.
