Come join J Street U at Wesleyan for a talk with Avner Gvaryahu, a
representative from Breaking the Silence, for a presentation about
what the organization does and the reality of life under Israeli
occupation. Discussion will follow.
Breaking the Silence is an organization of veteran combatants who have
served in the Israeli military since the start of the Second Intifada
and have taken it upon themselves to expose the Israeli public to the
reality of everyday life in the Occupied Territories. They endeavor to
stimulate public debate about the price paid for a reality in which
young soldiers face a civilian population on a daily basis, and are
engaged in the control of that population’s everyday life.
