In the first episode of our Dozen Tuesdays webinar season, we focussed on the Palestinian city of Hebron and the surrounding South Hebron Hills when we were joined by members of our partner HIRN’s management team. HIRN stands for Hebron International Resources Network, and they are based in Hebron and work across the surrounding areas.

Our webinar:

  • gave some background as to why Hebron and this region are unique and the huge difficulties that this brings
  • updated us on the current situation before discussing their remarkable grassroots work in different communities
  • shared stories from the communities in which HIRN work.

Hebron International Resource Network (HIRN) offers responsive and targeted support to some of the most threatened and marginalised Palestinian communities and individuals. HIRN brings compassion, practical help, and encouragement needed to remain and grow in the face of aggression, intimidation, and dispossession.

Twelve months on, and the Gaza Sunbirds have started their training. In this webinar, we were joined by Alaa, Moe Zarour from the Palestine Riders Mountain Bike Club and Ellen Logan from the Big Ride for Palestine.

50 years: Harold Blandon from CEPAD in Nicaragua
— — — — — — — —

Amos Trust’s Karin Joseph was live in Nicaragua with CEPAD Director Emily Reyes and Field Workers Harold Blandon and Joel Rodriguez, to celebrate CEPAD’s 50th anniversary.

CEPAD was formed as an emergency response to the 1972 Earthquake that destroyed Managua and turned it into the city ‘where the streets had no name’. Gustavo Parajón, CEPAD’s founder, recognised the urgent need to find practical ways to educate and empower Nicaragua’s rural poor to be able to claim their rights, develop sustainable livelihoods and put an end to preventable diseases.

Fifty years on their work continues across nearly 50 rural communities to build sustainable futures and to address the ever-worsening impacts of climate change on the country.

Emily, Harold and Joel updated us on their current work — particularly their new five-year programme with seven new communities around Teustepe in the Baoco region that Amos supports. They also be fed back on their emergency responses to the December 2020 hurricanes and the ongoing impact of Covid while talking about their plans for the future.

Savoury or Sweet? A plate of Palestinian pancakes
— — — — — — — —

What do you like on your pancake? Lemon and sugar? Perhaps a dribble of maple syrup? On Shrove Tuesday, we shook things up a bit. We decided to ask some fantastic Palestinian chefs to join us for a live Palestinian Pancake Party!

Phoebe Rison from the Olive Tree Kitchen (and Sabeel-Kairos), Manal Ramadam White from Zaytoun and Sally Azzam Cook from the Liwan Cafe in Nazareth (and Amos Trust staff member), joined other Palestinian chefs to share their own unique Palestinian pancake recipes — both savoury and sweet.

They ran through the ingredients and their significance in Palestine and demonstrated how to cook their traditional pancakes before showing us ‘one they made earlier’.

As they mixed, poured and tossed, they chatted with our resident cooking host Chris Rose (who also prepared one earlier), about the unique dishes cooked in Palestine during Lent (the period running up to Easter), on the importance of Fair Trade Fortnight for Palestinian farmers, the growth of interest in Palestinian cooking and Amos’ new Taste of Palestine programme.

Global South: A young Nicaraguan climate activist
— — — — — — — —

In honour of International Women’s Day, Amos Trust hosted a special webinar focusing on how climate change disproportionately impacts women from the Global South.

Since 2019, Amos has been having conversations and learning more from female climate justice activists in the UK and worldwide and has been exploring the importance of women-led and feminist leadership models. We know so many young women are already taking the lead, and we want to partner with them to amplify the conversation.

At COP26 in November 2021 and during the following months, we spoke to several young female climate activists from the Global South, many of whom have kept in touch with one another via social media. They have expressed that their solidarity, spanning thousands of miles, inspires them to make a change in their communities.

So watch again as we hear from Marie, Adenike and Immaculate — three fearless female climate activists, about the work they’re doing in their communities to fight against the climate crisis.

On Your Marks, Get Set... Run The Wall

For our ninth webinar of the season we provided an update from those who took part in our Run The Wall fundraiser before we focused on three main aspects of why we ran:

  • the right to freedom of movement,
  • the 20th anniversary of the start of the building of the Separation Wall,
  • the intersection of the Wall and the Israeli authorities policy of house demolitions.

We were joined by George Zeidan and Diala Isid from Right To Movement, who talked about the inspiration behind the Palestine Marathon and how it has become a focal point for solidarity with the Palestinian people.

Elias D’eis from Holy Land Trust also joined us to discuss our Home Rebuild plans for 2022 and to update us on the 2021 rebuild.

For webinar ten of the season we were joined by our good friends Jeff Halper and Linda Ramsden from the Israeli Committee Against Home Demolitions (ICAHD). We discussed with them why Israel pursues the policy of home demolition both within the Occupied Palestinian Territory and the state of Israel, its devastating impacts and the actions they are involved in to challenge this practice.

We also discussed with Jeff and Linda the response within Israel to Amnesty International joining other leading humanitarian organisations in identifying Israel as an Apartheid State and ICAHD’s connection to the One Democratic State Campaign (ODSC) ‘from the River to the Sea’ and why they believe that this is the only way that will ensure full equal rights for Palestinians and Israelis.

This Is Our Story; What IS Yours?

The Peace Mural, part of The People’s Gallery by the Bogside Artists

The Peace Mural, part of The People’s Gallery by the Bogside Artists
— — — — — — — —

A recent exhibition in Cambridge entitled ‘Art, Conflict, and Remembering: The Murals of the Bogside Artists’ featured twelve striking murals painted on the gable walls of flats in the Bogside area of Derry/Londonderry between 1994 and 2006. The murals tell the story of the Troubles and are known as “The People’s Gallery.”

For the penultimate webinar of the season, and to mark the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, we were joined by Adrienne Chaplin, the exhibition’s curator, and Tom Kelly, one of the Bogside Artists.

The Bogside Murals depict important moments of the Troubles, including the early Civil Rights Marches, the Battle of the Bogside, Bloody Sunday, the Hunger Strikes, Nobel Peace Prize winner John Hume and, not least, the death of many children, including family and friends of the artists.

Unlike most murals in Belfast and most of Northern Ireland, the series of murals is not sectarian but draws attention to the effect of conflict on innocent citizens, especially children.

A Palestinian flag planted in the sand near a rock that has the word 'Amos' written on it.

For our last webinar in the current season, we discussed the increased pressure to silence those who advocate for Palestinian rights, whether inside Palestine, in the UK, or across Europe.

We were joined by those seeking to ensure that this pressure will not be successful, including:

  • Wesam Ahmad from Al Haq, an independent Palestinian non-governmental human rights organisation based in Ramallah, West Bank;

  • Giovanni Fassina, Programme Director from The European Legal Support Centre, the first and only independent organisation defending and empowering the Palestine solidarity movement in Europe through legal means;

  • Kat Khoury from PalArt Collective who promotes Palestinian artists, increases high-quality creative content on Palestine, and coordinates artistic endeavours focusing on long-term impact and ad hoc responses to situations of urgency.
