Tucson, Arizona, USA

Join us as we welcome two Palestinian activists from the West Bank, *Feryal Abu Haikal* and *Mohammed Khatib*, now on a national speaking tour with the International Solidarity Movement for an evening of solidarity-building between communities challenging militarization.

While we engage in organizing to change and demand human rights at the borders, "national security" and military occupations continue disregarding the communities most directly impacted. Through community-to-community solidarity we strengthen our vision, raising voices to demand justice, demilitarization and the dismantling of all walls between peoples.

Mohammed Khatib and Feryal Abu Haikal both live in West Bank communities that are immediately threatened with destruction due to actions of the Israeli military and settlers. From February 1 - March 7, they will be speaking in 23 cities around the US about their personal experiences with Israeli efforts to seize Palestinian land and violently expel Palestinians from their homes and communities, as well as Palestinian efforts to mobilize to nonviolently resist those measures.

Largely unreported by the media, thousands of Palestinians and hundreds of Israelis are waging a grassroots, nonviolent campaign of resistance to Israel's apartheid system of military occupation and discrimination against Palestinians. They will speak in Tucson, Arizona on Saturday, March 3, 2007 at 5:30 p.m. at St. Cyril's Church, alongside local organizers challenging the militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border region.
