Our Visitor Yousef Awad meets Mayor of Tower Hamlets

On Friday 9th October, THJFA held a very productive meeting with Tower Hamlets Mayor John Biggs, Deputy Mayor Rachael Saunders, and Speaker Abdul Mukit.

They all listened with great interest to Yousef Awad from Jenin , who told personal stories about the effects of the Israeli occupation on his life, and we reflected on the current violations that Israel is perpetrating on Palestinians who live under military occupation.
We discussed, in some detail, strengthening the links between our communities, and all were invited to visit Jenin and Palestine. See pictures of the visit here.
