On 3rd October 2012 from 7.30 - 11.30 pm a silent night trail took part in Jericho from the Ein Dyuk spring to the Arab Development Society. 70 people walked in one line from the mountains through the city to the desert and edge of Jericho to the border of Jordan.
I will not speak for the entire walk and remain in complete silence.
I will walk in one line. I will follow one person in front of me.
I will turn my mobile phone off and not use it.
I will not take any images.
I will not smoke.
I will not re-act to any direct or indirect responses from pass-byers.
We will make 2 stops for water and toilet demands.
We will have people with us who will talk to the audience, answer questions and secure the traffic for us.
There will be one documentation team with us, filming and photographing.
We will start the walk after an introduction to the situation and context.
We will end the walk with a joint meal and conversation about our experiences and observations.
