Constructing a playground in Yanun, in memory of Abir Aramin


Yanun is a small, isolated Palestinian village that lies approximately 12km southeast of Nablus. The residents have been suffering for a long time from recurring harassments by the settlers of Itamar and the other unauthorized outposts in the area.

The Tel Aviv-Nablus branch of Combatants for Peace has maintained a relationship with the people of Yanun for a few years.

Due to the obstacles raised by the Occupation, and the geographic remoteness, the infrastructures that the residents and their children enjoy are extremely limited. Therefore a playground will be built for the children of the village.

The playground will be built in memory of Abir Aramin (daughter of Bassam, a founding member of Combatants for Peace) who was shot and killed by a Border Police officer in 2007.

This will be the third playground dedicated to Abir in the West Bank and will be a collaborative project with Rebuilding Alliance.

Come and help us build, together with the villagers and residents of the greater area.

We will meet at Merkaz-Savidor Train Station (Tel Aviv) on Saturday, February 27th, at 9:30, and leave by organized transportation. Planned return at 16:00.

Come in clothes that you are comfortable and dont mind getting dirty; and bring water and a light meal.
