This event is free; no tickets are required.

Cambridge Forum is pleased to welcome ALICE ROTHCHILD, who will lead a panel discussion about living in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

The media give us views of the Middle East influenced by politics, international law, and distance.  But what does life in the Middle East feel like on the ground?  Physician ALICE ROTHCHILD of American Jews for a Just Peace – Boston leads a panel discussion on living under military occupation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.  Panelists from the AJJP Health and Human Rights Project present their observations of daily life in the West Bank and East Jerusalem made during their visits as part of human rights delegations over the past decade. These close-ups invite us to compare:  treaties vs. transportation? peace process vs. putting food on the table?
