From Gaza to Bil’in, popular resistance to the occupation remains steadfast. Drawing delegations from across the globe, the Bil’in conference will provide opportunities to build and strengthen ties between Palestinian, Israeli and international activists working against Israeli apartheid, to strategize and to support Palestinian popular resistance. Representatives from the popular committees throughout the West Bank will be in attendance.

As a result of our experience in previous years we have decided to add a fourth day to the conference and make more time for participatory workshops. The program will include a number of renowned presenters as well as opportunities to workshop, participate in a direct action and visit other communities engaged in popular resistance.

Tentative schedule:

  • Wednesday, Thursday mornings: Presentations and panels by Palestinian and international figures (to be announced), including a video-link to Gazan fishermen working under siege.
  • Wednesday, Thursday afternoons: Strategizing workshops to share ideas and brainstorm, connect and network with international activists. A focus on linking the global BDS movement to the struggle “on the ground”.
  • Friday: Demonstration in Bil’in against the settlements and separation wall.
  • Saturday: Field trips to visit different neighborhoods and villages currently involved in the popular struggle.

Conference admission: €30 suggested donation
Accommodation with Bil’in families: €20/night
