Palestine Israel Network 
9 April 2015


Dear Friends and Colleagues,   


Late breaking action for Tax Day from the US Campaign:

End Military Aid to Israel.  Check out what you can do here.


Pilgrimage and Witness: Members of the Palestine Israel Network's education work group will be on pilgrimage in Palestine/Israel from 18 April - 1 May.  Thanks to all those who contributed to the short-term fund-raiser for Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza which the group hopes to visit.  Look for updates in the Community section of our website and links on our Facebook page as well as in PINontheGo.

Making connections: Interfaith Peace-Builders' 2014 African Heritage Delegation recently released an important and powerful statement making connections between their experiences of oppression and Palestine's.  

Looking towards General Convention:  The Episcopal Peace Fellowship's reception is scheduled for Wednesday 24 June at 5:00PM at the Cathedral of St. Mark in Salt Lake City.  Purchase tickets (take advantage of the early bird special) here.  EPF will celebrate the Sayre Award honoree at this gathering. This peacemaker's award was established by the Episcopal Peace Fellowship (EPF) in 1979 to honor the Rev. John Nevin Sayre for his lifetime of service in the cause of peace. It is conferred every three years for "courageous witness in the cause of peace and justice" to a recipient chosen by the EPF Executive Committee. 

Supporting the Cultural Boycott: The US Campaign to End the Occupation alerts us that Lauryn Hill, an American singer-songwriter and rapper best known for being a member of the Fugees, is set to perform in Israel on 7 May.  You can support the cultural boycott of Israel by signing this petition (if you haven't already) asking her not to perform there.

If you'd like to get these emails and you are not an EPF or EPF PIN member or are not an Episcopalian, check this link and check off to get the PIN complimentary list.  Note also that you can contact members of the steering committee by clicking on their name in the sidebar.
