An evening of dialogue at the Capitol Theatre

The Selkirk College Mir Centre for Peace welcomed former Israeli Defence Force helicopter pilot Yonatan Shapira to the Capitol Theatre last week for a Mir Lecture Series event. The Israeli citizen spoke about his transition to a peace activist in one of the most violent regions of the world. He told the crowd it will take a grassroots movement from people around the world to put an end to the turmoil in the Gaza Strip and West Bank. Nelson’s 2015 cultural ambassador Bessie Wapp took the stage a couple times during the evening to provide a musical break.
