Human rights activist Trip Jennings will be our guest on CNI: Jerusalem Calling this Thursday, April 8th, from 12 noon to 1 pm ET with CNI board member and host Dr. E Faye Williams. Jennings recently returned home from the occupied Palestinian territories where he worked as media coordinator for the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), an organization which connects the international community to Palestinians working to end the occupation. ISM also advocates the implementation of international law through non-violent direct action.
For months, Jennings lived with Palestinian families forcefully evicted by Jewish settlers in occupied East Jerusalem. He was on the ground in Jerusalem’s old city when tensions erupted into violence. Days later he witnessed the notorious Nablus killings.
As media coordinator he managed and distributed reports from activists across the West Bank and Gaza working closely with the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee, a grassroots framework of Palestinian communities actively resisting the occupation.
