Top diplomat to speak in Frome on Palestine issue

18th Mar 2016 @ 19:30

Frome Friends of Palestine are delighted to announce that Sir Vincent Fean, British Consul-General in Jerusalem until his retirement in 2014, will be coming to Frome on March 18.

“The Israel/Palestine conflict is bad and getting worse”, says Sir Vincent. “People need hope of a better tomorrow for their children. Peace can only come when people feel safe and free. Both parties to this uneven conflict need to change, but are either unable or unwilling. So we have a duty to help: speaking the truth to power, opposing violence, rekindling hope. How?”

Sir Vincent, a trustee of Medical Aid for Palestinians and patron of the Britain – Palestine Friendship and Twinning Network, will be speaking at St Catharine’s Hall, Park Road, Frome BA11 1EU on Friday March 18 at 7.30. Admission is free but donations to the Twinning Network would be appreciated. Refreshments available.Vincent Fean photo
