Discovering the wall

On Tuesday 25,  I visited the school La Sainte Union to continue with the 'Human Rights Lunch Club'

I prepared some questions about 'the separation wall' and some CADFA leaflets to show. The aim of  the session was to discover the history and the reasons about why they built the wall.
The students opened their computers and they started to search for some answers and at the same time we talked about the things that they were funding.

It was interesting to hear them talking about their feelings that the wall produced, because it is good not to  forget what is happening in Palestine. Some people expressed fear, or pain, horror, etc. and everybody  condemned the illegal construction.

At the next lunch club we will finish the questionnaire and continue enjoying and learning about Human Rights and Palestine.  I want to say 'thank you very much' to the students and I hope we will have a very interesting time together!
