The Commission is working in partnership with Pax Christi in the Leeds Diocese and the Leeds Palestinian Film festival to draw attention to International Conscientious Objection Day on 15 May.
Rev Clive Barratt, who has written a book about first world war conscientious objectors in Yorkshire, will provide a short context for the film which follows. After the film we will have the main person featured in it, Atalya, available via Zoom for a Q&A session. The event starts at 6pm with light refreshments and the opportunity to purchase Palestinian goods from a number of stalls. Reserve a place now for this free event! Use this link:Reserve a place
