Media Conference
* Halper is an Israeli Jewish peace activist making Halifax his first stop on a Canada-wide speaking and organizing tour.
* His visit is especially relevant given the recent Israeli attacks on Gaza. Jeff was a member of the first international flotilla to break the blockade of Gaza in August, 2008.
* Halper is co-founder of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (www.icahd.org), a non-violent group originally established to oppose and resist Israeli demolition of Palestinian houses in the Occupied Territories.
* Says Halper of the recent Israeli attack on Gaza: "The responsibility for the suffering both in Israel and Gaza rests squarely with successive Israeli governments, Labor, Likud and Kadima alike. Had there been a genuine political process (remember, the closure of Gaza began in 1989), Israelis and Palestinians could have been living together in peace and prosperity already for 20 years."

Organizer:Judy Haiven, (902) 491-8650 or on cell 240-2782, jhaiven@smu.ca
