RESOURCES FOR COMMUNITY EDUCATION ON THE CLOSURE AND FUTURE OF JERUSALEM

The North American Coordinating Council on the Question of Palestine (NACC) called for a week of action Sept. 13-19 protesting the closure which is preventing Palestinians from reaching hospitals, schools, work, religious sites, and family members, and having a devastating effect on the Palestinian economy.
