Next steps in Camden

We had two main Camden days: one was international women’s day at the Calthorpe Project, where there were lots of activities and a meeting about women’s lives in Palestine, as well as a link up to talk to women in Dar Assadaqa, Abu Dis, who were having an international women’s day event at the same time.
The second was a day of visits to some of the Camden universities – UCL, SOAS, Birkbeck. For me, the highpoints of that day were a very constructive discussion with UCL students about ways to move forward with the twinning, which has already started, a visit to Birkbeck where we discussed first steps in twinning with people in the union there and visited a class on international law and human rights where we seem to have made a powerful impression….
Many thanks also to members of Camden Abu Dis women’s links for all their help in Camden and elsewhere throughout the week.
