"Palestine: Itís HELL"
A slide show and presentation by John Reese

where: Christ Church Cambridge Zero Garden Street
( Harvard Sq.- Red line T stop)

John has been in Palestine for seven months working with the International Solidarity Movement (www.palsolidarity.org) and the Palestinian Hydrology Group (www.phg.org). The ISM is a Palestinian-led nonviolent movement of Palestinian and international activists working to raise global awareness of the struggle for Palestinian freedom and help bring an end to Israeli occupation.

John will show slides and tell stories about people living under occupation Ė and about the Palestinian and international nonviolent resistance movement that is growing in the West Bank and Gaza. A peace activist and a hydrogeologist, John also will talk about new evidence of environmental impacts of war and occupation on the earth and Palestinian communities. Water is contaminated and groundwater tapped out. Israeli and Palestinian waste pollutes villages, streams and Palestinian farmlands. Ancient olive trees are ripped from the ground and this is all in addition to the destruction wreaked by war and its industries - from uranium poisoning by the use of depleted uranium shells to land and property laid waste by fire, bombings and the machines of war.

John Reese was in Palestine until Dec 18. On Jan 8 he began a 2 month tour of the US. For pictures from Palestine see:www.seattlecan.org/.
