Welcome to the EAPPI blog!
EAPPI has the most human rights observers on the ground in Israel and Palestine. Our blog shares eyewitness reports, personal stories, photos and videos directly from these Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs) in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
You’ll see evidence of shocking human rights violations, such as Khaled who has suffered continuously from Israeli settler violence over the years, but perseveres in farming his land. You will also read inspiring stories of people on both sides of the conflict who tirelessly advocate for a just peace for Israelis and Palestinians, like Daher, whose Tent of Nations has brought internationals from around the world to nonviolently resist the confiscation of his land.
You’ll not only hear from our EAs on the ground, but from our community of advocates around the world. This blog is where the EAPPI community comes together and finds strength in its diversity. We hope you’ll be inspired to join!
EAPPI is a programme of the World Council of Churches, however, the impressions, hopes and ideas expressed in this blog are the contributions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the opinion or policies of the World Council of Churches.
