Mousa Abu Maria Speaking Tour

Village of Beit Ummar

Mousa Abu Maria has finally been granted permission to exit the Israeli-Occupied West Bank and is now on a speaking tour in France and Belgium with his wife Bekah. Mousa spent many years in Israeli jails and now is a leader of the Palestine Solidarity Project (PSP) in the village of Beit Sahour, between Bethlehem and Hebron in the Gush Etzion settlement block.

The PSP organizes weekly protests against the Occupation and encroachment by settlements on farmers' land near Beit Ummar. Mousa and Bekah also host individuals and groups for tours and multi-day programs in Beit Ummar.
