Art festival in Bethlehem (Palestine) to commemorate 50 years of occupation

We, the Arab Educational Institute (AEI) and two volunteers from Germany, want to organize an Art and Music Festival in Bethlehem in June 2017. Bethlehem, known as the birthplace of Jesus, is located in the West Bank (presently under Israeli occupation) and surrounded by a wall that is in some parts 8 meter high. In this environment we want to support the Palestinians who live here so that they do not give up their courage and voice their protest in a peaceful way. For this we need your support!

Liebe Unterstützer*innen!

Während in Bethlehem die Vorbereitungen für das Sumud for Freedom Festival laufen, sind die Dankeschöns schon auf dem Weg nach Deutschland, von wo sie dann weiter verteilt werden. Es sollte also nicht mehr lange dauern…

Auf diesem Blog werden wir bis zum Festival regelmäßig über die Vorbereitungen und Impressionen berichten. Alle, die darüber hinaus daran interessiert sind, in unregelmäßigen Abständen Infos und Berichte über die Arbeit des Arab Educational Institute zu bekommen, können uns eine Mail an [email protected] schreiben. Dann werdet ihr in den Verteiler aufgenommen. (Die Berichte sind auf Englisch.)
Alle, die schon im Verteiler sind, bleiben natürlich drin – falls ihr keine Infos mehr wünscht, könnt ihr dies jederzeit per Mail mitteilen.

Wir würden uns freuen, auch über dieses Projekt hinaus mit euch in Kontakt zu bleiben!

Herzliche Grüße vom
Sumud for Freedom-Team
