To raise awareness in Japan of the current crisis and what has led to this situation, Peace Boat is organizing an urgent event to hear directly from Palestinians living in Gaza and East Jerusalem together with Japanese experts on Friday May 21. The event will be predominantly in Japanese with speakers from Palestine speaking in English with Japanese interpretation.
We are currently preparing to raise funds for those affected by the airstrikes in Gaza, and will announce more details on this campaign on the day of the event.
Peace Boat has for decades worked together with partners in both Palestine and Israel, including providing a safe forum onboard our voyages for youth to meet and engage in dialogue, as well as emergency assistance. We oppose all violence and seek a just solution based on human rights, international law and dialogue.
Watch live here from 8pm JST on Friday May 21, or view as archives afterward.
