The group watched a video, The Balfour Declaration, which explained the UK's involvement in the creation of Israel. It is 50 years since the Arab Israeli wars which resulted in the illegal occupation of Palestinian territory by Israel, as defined by international humanitarian law and condemned under UN resolutions.
Recently 2 Palestinians came to visit the UK and talked about the everyday problems which they faced. Their talk was hosted by CAFOD Catholic Fund for Overseas Development and 3 members of our group attended. One of our members gave a short talk to the group on what they had heard.
