Saturday 4 September
4pm – 5.30pm
Informal ‘Dardesheh’ meeting
|We are sorry that the planned Cafe Palestine for 4 September has been postponed until a future date. Instead we will be holding another ‘Dardesheh’, our forum for open discussion for anyone in the network who would like to join. This will be a chance to catch up on developments in Palestine and in the solidarity movement and to support and sustain each other in the struggle. We hope you will join us on Saturday 4 September at 4pm-5.30pm|
