“The Bullet, the Ballot and The Boycott”
David Sheen, St Nicolas Hall, Guildford 24 November 2015

We have had many speakers to talk about the impact of the occupation of the Palestinian Territories, of illegal settlements. Not so many to inform us about the position of minorities in Israel, not just Palestinian Israeli citizens - the 1.7 million or so descendents of those not expelled 50 years ago - but also the many other minorities. Yet they are becoming increasingly important.




David Sheen is a Canadian Israeli, a prominent journalist, film-maker and speaker who has lived in Israel since 1999. With just an hour for his presentation before Q&A, he chose to focus on the last part of the title.

After his incredibly insightful and popular presentations earlier in the year about racism inside of Israel, David Sheen returns to the UK with an updated presentation and talk on this highly sensitive and rarely discussed topic. This is a meeting NOT to be missed.
Israel's institutional, systemic, governmental, societal and religious racism is a topic it tries to hide behind a facade of 'democracy' hoping that people don't ask any questions. David Sheen exposes this brutality with passion and facts based on his research and experience living in Dimona.

David has reported and appeared on media ranging from Al Jazeera to Haaretz, The Electronic Intifada to the BBC News, Alternet to Russia Today. He has made this his special area of research and reporting.

West Surrey PSC hosted a very successful visit by Nawal Slemiah, director of the women's handicraft co-operative Women in Hebron, who talked about the co-operative and the general situation in Hebron, as well as allowing us to purchase some of the beautiful embroideries that the co-operative makes.  The products of the co-operative include hand-woven and hand-embroidered traditional rugs, cushion covers and other handicrafts, which they sell in the Old Hebron market and online.  The initiative creates both work and hope for some 120 women and their families in a city which is frequently at the centre of tensions and violence.
