Wujood: The Grassroots Guide to Jerusalem
Wednesday, 11th September 2019 | 18:30 - 20:30
This event is for launching the second edition of Wujood, Grassroots Al-Quds’ political tourist guidebook to Jerusalem.
Wujood reveals the Jerusalem which most tourists do not know about. On the first hand, Wujood tells visitors where they can go and what they can see in the Eastern part of Jerusalem, providing them with practical information about places to stay, eat, and shop in the city. On the other hand, it provides the political and historical context in Jerusalem and tells its story from a Palestinian perspective.

Grassroots Al-Quds is a platform for Palestinian community-based mobilization, leadership and advocacy in Fayrouz Sharqawi Occupied Jerusalem. They believe that the challenges and responses of Palestinian communities must be articulated and led by them. They map and network in order for the Palestinian communities in Jerusalem to sustainably resist the Israeli policies of displacement, dispossession and dis-empowerment, by creating their own long term strategy, based on their defined priorities and needs.
