About the event:

Shabtay Bendet established one of the first illegal outposts in the West Bank, now he is fighting the occupation with Peace Now.

Shabtay monitors settlements for the most long-standing peace movement in Israel, Peace Now. Their research is the most reliable source of data on the West Bank settlements and is used by the Israeli government frequently.

There are over 600,000 Israeli settlers in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Understanding the settler movement’s DNA is the best way to understanding what is actually happening on the ground. Shabtay – who spent over 12 years dedicating his life to building an illegal outpost – will provide a real insider perspective of the settler movement.
