Finding our way

We, the members of EAPPI Group 38, started arriving in Jerusalem on 7 Dec. 2010, from around the world. We’ve begun to meet members of Group 37. Between these two groups (and more EAs are yet to arrive), we represent: Australia, Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Norway, Palestine, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States of America. Members of Group 37 introduced us to key spots in East and West Jerusalem yesterday and today and we were given our EA vests!!

Over the next few days, Group 38 will be learning from Group 37 about our work in Jerusalem. We will be watching checkpoints (in which Palestinians must move from one type of zone of the West Bank to another and/or into East Jerusalem); standing with the Women in Black; providing an international presence in villages in East Jerusalem with eviction and demolition orders, and more.

  1. Sounds like you are down to business already. What’ it like in Jerusalem as Christmas approaches? Will you be getting to Bethlehem during the season? Have a good beginning with your new friends.

  2. WWOW!!! Your feet are on the ground and there`s enthusiasm in your heart! Fabulous! Yet I`d imagine it`s quite daunting to hear what`s been done to date and what`s before you. Thankfully you`ll have the benefit of your predecessors. Peace be with you.

  3. Glad to hear that you arrived safely and are getting settled in, meeting other EA’s, etc. What a wonderful international group! We have been thinking about you! Freezing rain this morning in Edmonton — I’m sure you are not experiencing or missing that!!
