Nell is a long standing member of the Victorian Greens and an active member in the Maroondah/Knox branch. Come and hear about her 'Witnessing life in Palestine' - This year marks the 50th year of the Israeli military occupation of Palestine. Nell has recently returned from spending 3 months in the West Bank on a World Council of Church's program, effectively being a human rights monitor. Her time was spent hearing stories, conducting interviews, observing and documenting how the occupation looks, is enforced and its impact on the local population. During her 3 months, a Greens delegation, which included Senator Janet Rice, were also visiting Palestine and Nell gave them a presentation about her role and then spent the day with them travelling to see an Australia aid funded program.
