‟As Westerners we travel with huge privilege, relative wealth, social and religious freedom and we carry the baggage of empire, colonialism and militaristic imperialism. Simply visiting does not give us the right to assume an air of victimhood, to feel we are free from collusion with power because we spent a week hearing stories or to point angry fingers at oppressors while we benefit from unjust systems and structures.” Read about Amos trustee Jess Foster’s recent women-only trip to Palestine.
“He could not have known that every single one of his five children would be displaced in 1967 and that they would all lose their right to be called Palestinians. He could not have ever imagined that not a single one of his 19 grandchildren or 24 great grandchildren would live in Palestine or have any Palestinian documentation.” Phoebe Rison from Sabeel-Kairos UK writes about her family roots in Palestine on Nakba Day 2019
“When we go up onto the roof of the centre and look from there, we see the Unholy Trinity, the panoramic history of Palestine from 1948. We see the refugee camp, we see the settlements and we see the Wall.” Gill Hewitt sat down with Wi’am founder Zoughbi Zoughbi.
“I’ve been guilty over the last few months of shirking my responsibilities towards a cause that is very close to my heart. On the eve of International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, I’ve decided to renew my commitment to this cause, to seeking justice and equal rights for everyone who calls the Holy Land home.” Sarah Baron writes about how we can reinvigorate our support for Palestine.
“The idea was beautiful and crazy. The logistics alone would be an organisational nightmare. The risk assessment would run for pages. It would be a five-month, 3,300 kilometres trek across eleven countries with mountains, rivers and seas to navigate.” Amos trustee Robert Cohen writes the foreword for ‘Walking To Jerusalem’ – Justin Butcher’s book about his experience of walking from London to Jerusalem as part of Amos Trust’s ‘Just Walk To Jerusalem’ project in 2017.
