A report back from two months in the occupied Palestinian Territories. Dezeray Lyn has been a long-time community organizer around issues of animal rights, houselessness, and economic injustice. Recently, Dezeray joined the International Women’s Peace Service and spent two months in the West Bank providing international accompaniment to Palestinian civilians, resisting house demolitions, documenting and intervening in human right abuses, telling the forgotten stories of Palestinian mothers and political prisoners, and supporting acts of non-violent resistance to end the Israeli occupation. Dezeray will share her experiences of life under occupation but also the courageous strength, perseverance, and resilience of everyday Palestinian people who continue daily to resist oppression. Finally, Dezeray will speak on what we, as allies, can do to help end this occupation and support freedom for all Palestinians
