Madaa Creative Center in Silwan organized a meeting for the women of Silwan entitled “Plan and spatial challenges – in Silwan region” in cooperation with the Center for International Cooperation and Peace, within the project “Facts on earth, Palestinian community initiatives in Jerusalem”.

 

The meeting was run by the lawyer of the urban clinic and the planning staff at the Center for International Cooperation and Peace, Majd Abu Sneineh, where he reviewed everything related to the demolition of houses from administrative and non-administrative demolition orders, the difference between them, how to act in each case, and the institutions that must be resorted to for assistance and legal advice. He also gave real life modals and examples of demolition orders, and the legal procedures that are taken in the courts of the occupation.

 

At the end of the meeting, the women were given the opportunity to take legal advice on the subject of demolition, especially that the town of Silwan suffers from unfair occupation policy of demolishing buildings and facilities under the pretext of building without license, while the Israeli municipality requests are almost impossible when the citizen tries to obtain a license.
