Join People Not Walls to find out why people including families with children, and unaccompanied young people, are taking to the seas and what’s happening on our closest borders, events perhaps encouraging them to do so.

United States, Israel & the Trump Plan: Webinar
Jul 15 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
United States, Israel & the Trump Plan: Webinar

An event hosted by Yorkshire Sabeel.

Why is Donald Trump proposing this plan which most analysts believe is advantageous to Israel and problematic for Palestinians?

  • Do the Palestinians have any real influence in the matter?
  • To what extent is the Israeli position affected by demographic factors and is there support within Israel for annexing the whole of the West Bank?
  • What about the status of Jerusalem?
  • If Trump isn’t returned in November, how will that alter the situation?

Paul Rogers is Emeritus Professor of Peace Studies at Bradford University, an International Security Advisor to the Oxford Research Group and a regular contributor to Open Democracy.

Register via Eventbrite and Yorkshire Sabeel will send you the link.
