7th Boycott Israel Network Weekend Workshop

7th Boycott Israel Network Weekend Workshop BIN


DATE: 10-12th May, 2013

LOCATION: Coalbrookdale Youth Hostel, 1 Paradise, Coalbrookdale, Telford, TF8 7NR. MAP

COST: The cost will be £38 per person for food and accommodation. Beds will be in small en-suite dormitories. There are some double rooms available on a first come, first served basis.

The BIN Coordinating Committee are currently planning the programme for this latest BIN residential workshop. As always, the programme will be designed to provide an opportunity for activists to come together over a weekend to exchange ideas, discuss progress, develop new projects and share best practice. They are also an opportunity for those who want to find out more about the BDS campaign to meet those with experience in BDS campaigning.

The programme for BIN 7 will include updates on each of the BIN’s priority campaigns – Dump Veolia, Stop G4S, Agricultural Trade/Sainsburys and Eden Springs/Sodastream – plus much, much more.

The Boycott Israel Network (BIN) is comprised of individuals and organisations committed to campaigning for a comprehensive boycott of Israel, in response to the 2005 call from Palestinian civil society, until Israel complies with International law and the fundamental rights of the Palestinian people.

If you want to join us, register by making out a cheque to Northern Palestine Solidarity Network and send to c/o York PSC (BIN 7), PO Box 423, York YO24 4WP, enclosing full contact details. Please email Terry Gallogly at telandpad@yahoo.co.uk to confirm that your booking and payment have been posted.

Numbers are strictly limited by the size of the meeting room, and as we are usually oversubscribed so early booking is recommended.
