Public Apology Ceremony and a tour at the Palestinian Destroyed village of Lubya

Friday, May 1st

15:00 to 18:00

A South African Jewish group of "Stop The JNF South Africa" will organize on the 1st of May 2015, in cooperation with Zochrot, a public ceremony to apologize for using their funds by the JNF in building up the "South Africa Forest" on the Palestinian lands of the destroyed village Lubya.
Before the ceremony we will conduct a tour to the village site guided by refugees from Lubya and will hand out a new three lingual booklet about the history of the village.

"Over the past 18 months we have approached hundreds of Jewish South Africans, to break the silence on the JNF’s role in human displacement and colonial settlement, to which we have, wittingly or unwittingly, contributed. We have invited them to sign a Pledge of Solidarity with Palestinian comrades from Lubya. Today, we hand these Pledges to the Palestinian representatives of Lubya – a small step towards what we hope will become a far larger campaign for justice".
