More than 120 people visit first day of Palestine Place!
What a great first day!
We hosted workshops on BDS, Twinning with Palestine and the Palestinian youth movement. We ate lovely food, decorated our space and made decisions about how to use the space in the next few days.
And we’ve got a great day lined up tomorrow too:
