Press release - all about the tour (PDF).

The twinning network works to build friendship links between our two peoples. It all costs money, so donations welcome.

The Twinning with Palestine network encourages groups to engage with ordinary Palestinians and share their daily experiences under Israeli occupation with us.

At the November 2007 Twinning with Palestine network AGM, the Women's workshop decided the network should commit itself to bringing over to the U.K., a group of Palestinian women, to speak and attend rallies on International Women's Day. It went so well we decided to make it an annual event. More Woemn from the groups will be visiting again in March 2011. Meetings

Come and welcome the women in London. We are having a meal near Russell Square to welcome them on 4th March. We need to know numbers before this event, please contact us if you wish to come.

National tour of Palestinian Women 2011

Once again this year the tour is being organised by CADFA (Camden Abu Dis), sponsored by the twinning network. They will be speaking at towns and cities all over the U.K. where there are twinning groups as well as many other places looking to build links with Palestinian communities. Due to considerable interest and our attempt to squeeze as much in as possible, the planned meetings are changing constantly. Please bookmark and follow this page or even better join the facebook page or blog, to keep up to date with the latest information.

Twinning groups welcome Palestinian women on speaking tour of Britain for International Women's Day

Students together with workers in education, health and social services, members of women's groups and members of local twinning committees are being brought to London by different twinning groups that are members of the Britain-Palestine Twinning Network. They will be joining in International Women's Day celebrations and public meetings on Palestine, as well as visiting universities, schools and workplaces to promote Britain-Palestine Twinning.

Public attention has turned towards Palestine since the Israeli attacks on Gaza in January, said ND, secretary of the Twinning Network, "This is very important because the human rights violations in Palestine are the centre of a knot of trouble that not only affects the Middle East but involves all of us."

But January 2009 in Gaza is just one part of the story. These women will be telling of the difficulties caused to normal life by the Separation Wall and the brutalities of the Israeli Occupation in the West Bank, which is all part of the Israeli pressure on people in Palestine to leave, because they want the land but not the people in it.

This tour will take these women's stories to an audience of thousands across the country.
