Hiroshima and more
- 0

70 years ago, on August 6 and August 9, hthe US government of Harry Truman dropped nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Here is from my visit and speak on that anniversary August 6, 2013 in Hirshima: http://popular-resistance.blogspot.com/2013/08/palestinian-in-hiroshima.html . This is the same Truman that pushed successfully to create nuclear armed apartheid state of Israel that is terrorizing Palestinians and has committed hundreds of massacres. Today Saad Dawabshe died of his severe burns. He is the father of 18 month old martyr Ali who was burned alive in the attack by racist Jewish colonial settlers on their family home. The mother and second child still in critical condition. And the world leaves a group of “pyromaniacs led by an egalomaniac” running a tinderbox (not my words but words of an ex-Director of Israel’s security service, see below). But the struggle goes on.

Reflections on Food Sovereignty & Local Food Systems in occupied Palestine & Australia
Food sovereignty practices vary around the world according to culture, context and capital.  This presentation presents stories from occupied Palestine and Australia providing an analysis of attempts to enact practices of food sovereignty.
Rasha will facilitate this workshop. She is a nutritionist, researcher and artist interested in the space where art and health intersect – exploring connections with our selves, bodies, communities and ecologies.  Her curiosity led her to study and practice in the fields of nutrition, herbal medicine, public health and the arts – developing a holistic approach to her practice.  Having worked on various projects across health promotion, alternative food systems, food sovereignty, and sustainability.  Her work draws on themes around phenomenology, health, culture, feminist issues, spirituality and humans’ place in society and their natural environment.

This week we are participating in Bethlehem Live festival (see http://www.betlahemlive.com/ )
