Part one: We hear a talk given in Storrs, Connecticut, by Chris Allen Doucot, a founder of the Hartford Catholic Worker. While peace talks between Israel and Palestine remain stalled, a growing number of peace activists from around the world are visiting Palestine to observe or participate in a growing protest movement there. At stake are the illegal Israeli settlements and separation wall, and a lack of access to Jerusalem where many holy sites are now blocked off for both Jewish and Christian Palestinians. The event was organized by the Israel/Palestine Peace, Education and Action Group of N.E. CT. They invited Chris Allen Doucot to discuss his recent visits to Palestine and Afghanistan.
In part two Chris Allen-Doucot talks about his personal experiences while protesting to include having settlers dump sewage water on him and on his teen age son.
