Jon Neall visits learners to talk about peace

07 December 2010
Last week, Citizenship AS students welcomed Jon Neall, Ecumenical Israel/ Palestine Peace Monitor for the Red Cross.

Jon has spent five months in Israel and Palestine, monitoring human rights issues and recording them for the Red Cross and shared his experiences and thoughts about wider issues surrounding human rights.

Jon explained the geographical and historical problems in Israel and Palestine and detailed how the conflict affects people's lives.

Jon is inspirational, motivational and sensitive to the issue and reflected both sides of the problem.

The learners valued his visit tremendously and are keen to have him return later in the year for further talks.
