Reception Honoring Iyad Burnat
When: Thursday, December 13, 5:00pm
Where: Grace Place, 637 S. Dearborn
$10 admission. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Iyad Burnat is a leader of a Palestinian village's popular non-violent protest movement (the Bil'in Popular Committee) against Israeli occupation and illegal land claims and settlement.
He is in the midst of a 2-month speaking tour around the U.S., his first trip here. Many of us have met Iyad while visiting the West Bank and experienced his family's gracious hospitality. Iyad is traveling with hand-embroidered goods from his village, and we will have an opportunity to purchase items (just in time for the holidays!) to support Bil'in.
