The Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD) invites you to 

 

The Dedication of a Rebuilt Beit Arabiya in Anata

 

Sunday, 25 August 2013, 4:30 pm

 

Beit Arabiya, a Palestinian home in Anata demolished six times by the Israeli authorities and rebuilt each time by ICAHD has been rebuilt once again – this time as a memorial site of demolition and displacement where visitors can walk through the ruins of a demolished home and view exhibits on aspects of the Occupation. Reconstructed by volunteers from around the world over two weeks during ICAHD’s 11th annual rebuilding camp, Beit Arabiya will also be a place where Palestinian and international artists can perform and where Palestinian and Israeli activists can meet to strategize.

 

Since 1997 ICAHD has been resisting Israel’s policy of demolishing Palestinian homes – more than 28,000 in the Occupied Territories since 1967. For more information on ICAHD and Beit Arabiya, see <www.icahd.org>.

 

The dedication ceremony will be held on Sunday, August 26, at 4:30, at the site of Beit Arabiya in Anata and all are invited. Transportation is being provided and will leave from outside the Jerusalem Hotel at 3:30. To book your place please contact Linda on 054 785 6852 or Jeff on 054 303 9170 jeff@icahd.org

 

If you choose to come on your own, enter Anata on the by-pass road after Hizma and follow the main street all the way into Anata. Turn left in town at the sign for Beit Arabiya, and follow the paved road until you see another Beit Arabiya sign to your left. Then follow the signs on the mostly unpaved road  to Beit Arabiya. If you have problems, call Salim on 054-227-3218.
