Our “West Bank ABC” event on Friday 19th April at Whitstable Labour Club went very well, and we had a full house. Richard Stainton presented his photos from his trip to the West Bank, followed by questions and answers. Richard also presented Whitstable Labour Club with a framed picture of the photos he had taken of the apartheid wall in recognition of their support.
Four musicians from Faversham led by Nico then set up and played a wonderful jazzy selection of tunes. We thanked them and gave them each a bottle of Palestinian olive oil for their excellent contribution to a successful evening.
We got agreement from the Oxfam shop in Faversham to have some Palestinian Zaytoun fair trade goods for sale or return and sold almost everything (£61 worth).
