Helping to deepen non-racialism

I am attending a discussion hosted by the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation attended by a Christian Palestinian delegation talking about the Kairos Palestine Document, a declaration of intent seeking to address the Palestinian issue from a religious, social and moral perspective.

I am appalled by the suffering, acts of violence and humiliation suffered by ordinary people trying to come to terms with the occupation. Their fight and struggle for self determination has South African parallels and I see in it my own struggle. It pains me to see that not much progress has been made since the Oslo Accord. A delegate at this discussion made a comment that made me very sad, she said this “I see no end in sight for our struggle”
