Pittsfield: First Church to host Palestinian speaker


First Church of Christ will host "Perspectives: An Evening with Abdulhadi Hantash" at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 24.

Hantash, of the Hebron Land Defense Committee, has worked non-violently for just relationships between Israel and Palestine since the 1990s. He is a well-respected authority on land settlements, particularly in the West Bank where he lives.

Hantash has been in the United States this month on a speaking tour. He will be testifying in Washington, D.C., about recent events in Palestine.

The program is free. The church is located at 27 East St. on Park Square.
