Eva Bartlett, human rights and justice activist event in Chico

Last Monday night we were pleased to enjoy the thoughtful and dramatic presentation of Eva Bartlett, human rights and justice activist.  The Unitarian Church was packed.  She had a wonderful command of the events she witnessed in Gaza, where she lived for a number of months.  With all the bombing and shooting of innocent civilian Palestinians by the Israelis, she was lucky to get out alive.  She said what ever activism we are doing ...keep it up or do more.  It is important work.  The lack of justice for Palestinians diminishes our justice.  She was charming and well spoken and had amazing photos and video of her experiences.  She is a member of the International Solidarity Movement, like Rachel Corrie. She was inspiring. It was a good night.
