She will talk about her experience acting as a protective presence in vulnerable Bedouin communities, communities caught in the ‘seam zone’ by the Israeli-built security barrier (better known as the Wall) and at checkpoints.
Jane Wheelock was a volunteer with the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Israel and Palestine and will explain how EAPPI fieldworkers have been collecting data on Human Rights violations for UN agencies for over 10 years (http://www.quaker.org.uk/
