Sunday 6 September at 3pm.
at Carterton Community Courthouse,
Holloway Street (beside Carterton Events Centre)
Marilyn invites you to join in on the conversation on Gaza.
Marilyn Garson is an experienced aid professional who created jobs at the edge
of war. In 2011, she became the economic director of a large NGO programme,
leading an ambitious young Palestinian team. Gaza’s business owners, technology
graduates, and job-seeker,(facing the highest rate of unemployment on earth)
overturned Marilyn’s understanding of aid and justice. She then volunteered to join
the United Nations emergency team that would remain inside Gaza through the 2014 war.
‘Marilyn Garson dissolves the stereotypes about Gaza, as human beings march
through its pages. Read it, and you will never think about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the same way again.’
—S. Michael Lynk, UN Special Rapporteur for the Situation of Human Rights in the
Palestinian Territory Occupied since 1967
