Save Wadi Foquin

October 27, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

CMEP is co-sponsoring a forum with Friends of Wadi Fouqin on Wednesday, October 27 at 1p ET. Join us as we receive “on the ground” updates from the village, progress reports on our efforts to avert land confiscation and property demolition, and plans for continued community action and advocacy to Save Wadi Foquin.

The West Bank Palestinian village of Wadi Foquin is being threatened by land confiscation for the construction of a road to serve the settlement enterprise.

On October 13th farmers in Wadi Foquin received demolition orders for properties which include homes, water cisterns, a compost facility, and agricultural storage facility. They are being instructed to demolish their own properties or face demolition from the occupation forces, at their own cost.

Join the webinar for an update on efforts to fight the confiscation of Wadi Foquin and the fight against the Israeli settlement movement.

Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Congressman David Price issued a letter to the State Department requesting intervention for the Palestinian village of Wadi Foquin where land confiscation is planned for the construction of a road cutting through the eastern portion of the village.  A total of 20 other congressional offices signed on to the letter, and the action has generated major media coverage in the West Bank.

In the meantime, five farmers in Wadi Foquin have been issued demolition orders for properties which include homes, water cisterns, a compost facility, and an agricultural storage house for beekeeping equipment.

Join us as we receive “on the ground” updates from the village, progress reports on our efforts to avert land confiscation and property demolition, and  plans for continued community action and advocacy to Save Wadi Foquin
