Fact-finding mission to Israel and Palestine

ALTERNATIVES, 1 June 2002

Alternatives will be sending its second fact-finding team to Palestine between May 31 and June 8.

Participants include two members of our Board of Directors (Judy Rebick and Monique Simard) and three young Canadians of Palestinian and Israeli origin. They will visit our partners, (organisations working for peace) in both the occupied territories and Israel.

The mission aims to create links and build solidarity between Canadian, Israeli and Palestinian youth, thereby contributing to rebuilding the peace-process and trying to create a different world. A parallel goal is investigating how Alternatives can support progressive organisations in their struggle for peace, democracy and an equitable solution. Upon their return, they will share their experiences with other Canadians.
