Event – Show your support

Friends of Al-Aqsa has the special privilege of hosting Bishop Riah Hanna Abu El-Assal on Tuesday 24th March 2009.

Bishop Riah was formerly the Bishop of Jerusalem, and has been at the forefront of defending religious sites in Jerusalem against the occupation. This is an opportunity to meet and show him the support that the Palestinian people have in England.  Due to the lack of access to the outside world, the Palestinians feel that no one is concerned about them, so this is a very important opportunity to show them that this is not the case.

Friends of Al-Aqsa are holding a two events on Tuesday 24th March 2009

1. A public talk from 5pm – 6pm at Highfields Community Centre, Melbourne Road, Leicester – All Welcome

2. A fundraising dinner from 7.15pm at Chilli Tonight, Melton Road, Leicester.  £25 per person.

Bishop Riah will be attending both events so please come along and support him.

For further information or to purchase tickets please contact us on 0116 2125441 or 07989 698483
