Israeli Human Rights Activist speaking in Guildford.

Woman Against Occupation & For Human Rights

Susan Lourenco, producer of the documentary film, Kalandia: a checkpoint story,  will report on her work with Machsom Watch on

Tuesday, July 5th at 7.30pm, St Nicolas Church Hall, Guildford.

The peace movement Machsom Watch is a group of Israeli women, peace activists from all sectors of Israeli society, who oppose the Israeli occupation and the denial of Palestinians' rights to move freely in their land. Since 2001, they have conducted daily observations ofIsraeli army checkpointsin the West Bank, along the separation wall and beyond where Palestinians are often harassed and humiliated.

“In order to ease the Palestinian suffering to which we are witness at the checkpoints every day, we try to provide ad hoc assistance to the extent that it is possible.”

Susan Lourenco has volunteered for the Machsom Watch organization for seven years, so she is familiar with virtually every checkpoint in the West Bank. Susan, and many other volunteers, station themselves at checkpoints practically every day.

“We work to explain to the Israeli public what happens at the checkpoints, which are one of the symbols of the occupation, and that the checkpoints are not meant to protect Israeli citizens, but rather the settlers, so that they can continue to control the land."
