Week 9: Restrictions on Movement Online Gathering

Week 9: Restrictions on Movement Online Gathering

We explored the checkpoints, walls, roadblocks, policies, and laws that limit the movement of Palestinians, often dividing Palestinians from their own families and their own lands and inconveniencing thousands of Palestinians on a daily basis. Our guest was be Tarteel Junidi of Christian Peacemaker Teams.

More about our guest:

Tarteel Al-Junaidi is from Hebron, Palestine. She graduated from Bethlehem University in 2017. She volunteered in several NGOs, mainly aimed to empower Palestinian women and youth. She writes, “Being a Palestinian woman means that the oppression is doubled. However, that made me a strong believer in justice for everyone in this world.” So she joined Christian Peacemaker Teams in 2019.

Here are a couple of her articles with CPT:
