I am an accompanier in Israel/Palestine, sent from World Council of Churches through the Norwegian Church Aid. The tasks of the accompaniers is to protect civilians in their daily life through our presence, report violation of human rights, solidarity work and advocacy work. The intention is in other words that I am going to do something useful.

    Best of luck during your stay in Palestine. I was on the 2006 Olive-picking programme, which I enjoyed immensely and will never forget the experience nor the Palestinian people as long as I live.

    Since I came back to UK in November 2006, I have never stopped working, reading and informing myself about the stuation in Palestine. I have spoken in churches, schools, colleges, Amnesty groups, political groups and so on. Sometimes the people are sympathetic, sometimes they are not.

    We have a Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival every year and this year our group (Arts For Palestine) organised a Palestinian Poetry Evening in one of the theatres in Liverpool. It was well-attended and a great success. We also had Palestinian Dabka Dancers and we showed the play “My Name is Rachel Corrie”. All this helps as well as writing letters to MPs and joining demonstrations.

    Enjoy your time in beautiful Palestine. Keep safe and be blessed.
