Interview With Israeli Peace Activist Dorothy Naor
Dorothy Naor spoke in Santa Cruz on Wednesday, March 19th at the Resource Center For Nonviolence on the topic of "The Cost Of Occupation For Israelis And Palestinians".
Dorothy Naor was born in San Francisco, CA. in 1932 and grew up in the Bay Area. She met her Israeli husband when he came to study at UC Berkeley in the early 1950's. They and their three children made Israel their home in 1958. Over the past 8 years much of her time has spent in activism against Israel's occupation of Palestine. She is a member of New Profile, a pluralist feminist movement, comprised of both women and men, which seeks to transform Israel from a militaristic one to a civil one. New Profile supports refusal to serve in the military, opposes the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories, and supports selective divestment from companies that contribute to maintaining the occupation.
