Palestine solidarity evening
November 7 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm€2.50
🇵🇸 For the last few weeks, Palestinians in Gaza have been living under the constant terror of bombs dropping over their homes, schools, hospitals, and refugee camps. At the same time, Israel has cut off their access to electricity, water, food, medical supplies, and humanitarian aid. In the West Bank, Palestinians are experiencing increased colonial violence and repression and arrests. Statements from Israeli officials make it clear that their intention is genocide.
The current intensification cannot be seen in isolation from the last 75 years of settler colonialism, ethnic cleansing and repression of Palestinian civil society. The Hamas attack on the 7th of October comes as a response to Israel’s colonial violence and enters the diverse web of Palestinian resistance. We invite you for an evening of solidarity with Palestine and a chance to learn more about the context of what is happening today and in particular how food can play a role in the struggle for liberation.
from 6/7 pm – dinner served by De Sering (donation based)
9pm – film screening The Wanted 18, mostly Arabic, with English subtitles
10.30 – discussion with Students for Justice in Palestine and Om Sleiman Farm
💰 There will be additional snacks and all proceeds will go to a fundraiser for Gaza.
🎬 About the film:
“The wanted 18” is an award winning documentary by filmmakers Amer Shomali and Paul Cowan that tells the story of how 18 cows were declared a threat to Israel’s national security during the first Intifada. A group of Palestinians begins producing milk for the residents of Beit Sahour, a small town in the Occupied West Banks, determined to be a model of self-reliance and provide their community with alternatives to replace Israeli goods.
The film is in Arabic and English with subtitles in both languages. The discussion will be held in English. The space is wheelchair accessible and has gender neutral toilets. If you have any concerns regarding this, please send an email to email@example.com.
🤝 This event is a collaboration of Students for Justice in Palestine and ASEED.
