The struggle against the occupation and for democracy and equality depends on the time and energy of volunteers, but it also involves high legal expenses. One of the methods of suppressing the struggle against the occupation is legal persecution: many demonstrators Palestinians as well as Israelis are arrested at demonstrations for no reason. They are accused of false charges against which they must defend themselves. Despite the willingness of a dedicated legal team to work for solidarity rates, the costs add up to a substantial amount.

25% of the sale price of each work will be paid to the artist who donated the work. All funds raised will be dedicated to covering legal expenses. 

Opening hours: Thursday 20:00-23:00; Friday 10:00-16:00; Saturday 10:00-22:00

The initiators of the intervals project were the Coalition of Women For Peace which has supported this struggle from its inception and Anarchists Against The Wall have taken part in this struggle for about 10 years and have paid a high personal, legal and financial price.

These days the intervals project is being carried on by a group of activists to support the original goals of the project.

Coalition of Women for Peace is marking our  15th anniversary by screening testimonies collected especially for this event: women from Susiya and the Jordan Valley talking about their daily reality of living under Israeli occupation

Also on the agenda: a photo exhibition and a panel discussion on human rights violations and the lives of Palestinian women under occupation

Together, we will mark years of activism and partnerships in the struggle against the occupation and subjugation of the Palestinian people. We will take a closer look at the complexities and vulnerabilities of the lives of Palestinian women under occupation. And together, we will think about ways and activities to change the reality of occupation and transform the current political discourse that ensures Israel’s impunity from international law.
