Through 14 countries from Sweden to Palestine.

An awareness raising project done by Solidarity Rising’s Benjamin Ladraa in order to highlight the occupation of Palestine. It coincided with the centenary of the Balfour declaration of 1917 and consisted of a 5000 km long trek through 14 countries from Sweden to Palestine.

During the trek Benjamin spoke to many civil society organisations, media outlets, people in the streets and people online. Some of the videos produced reached over one million views online.

After the walk Benjamin embarked on a speaking tour doing talks in Sweden, Denmark, the United States and the United Kingdom. He spoke to thousands of people in universities, libraries, community centers, religious institutions and people’s homes.

The walk was between August 2017 – July 2018 and the speaking tour was conducted between 2018 – 2019.
