Kairos Puget Sound observes World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel

On Saturday, September 19th, the Kairos Puget Sound Coalition observed the World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel by erecting an 8 foot high by 20 foot wide model of the apartheid Wall in Palestine. The display of the Wall was put up at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle. The theme this year was “The Wall Will Fall”. Signs with different messages such as “Equal Rights for Palestinians” were borrowed from the organization Voices for Palestine and attached to the Wall.
An informational table with leaflets was set up nearby. Members of the Coalition answered questions and engaged people in conversation. The peaceful event concluded with a dynamic program that was led off with lively protest songs composed by folk singer Betsy Rose. A Palestinian singer/director led the singing, accompanied by a guitarist. Speakers included: Amin Odeh, head of Voices for Palestine; Huda Giddens, educator and Palestinian peace activist; author Jen Marlowe; and actress Ruth McRee, who led those gathered in reading a prayer for Jerusalem. There were approximately 15 participants.
Local (Puget Sound) churches and peace organizations may borrow the Wall, along with a banner showing a picture of the actual wall. For more information, including illustrated assembly instructions, contact
