Sunday, October 28, Daoud Nassar, Palestinian Farmer, “We Refuse to be Enemies”, 7 PM
“We Refuse to be Enemies: Story of a Palestinian Farmer.” Daoud Nassar is Director of the Tent of Nations (TON), a project on his family farm 6 Km from Bethelem. The farm is ringed by Jewish Settlements and the encroaching Separation Wall. In spite of having been cut off from electricity and water, Tent of Nations has managed to offer arts and education programs to area Christians, Muslims and Israelis as a means of increasing understanding of one another’s narratives. People join together to plant trees, harvest olives and fruit and come together in solidarity in the face of direct attempts by settlers from surrounding Israeli settlements to intimidate them off the land they have owned since 1916. Dauod’s new book, “Daher’s Vineyard: The Story about the Tent of Nations,” will be available. Contact Darrell Yeaney, firstname.lastname@example.org.
