Another incredible day of events, planning and discussion
Today at Palestine Place we’ve had around 150 people come down to another brilliant day of workshops, discussions and action planning.
We’ve had two amazing live video link ups with Stop the Wall and Khader Adnan (video and transcripts to come!), a workshop about SmashEDO, and an introductory session on Israeli apartheid and BDS.
As well as this there was an incredible discussions about culture and clowning without normalising occupation AND amazing spoken word poetry from Da Poet.
* ACTION NOTICE: Khader Adnan spoke movingly about the plight of prominent Palestinian footballer Mahmoud Sarsak, in his 78th day of hunger strike in Israel’s Ramle jail. A spontaneous meeting was held to plan a protest action.
Please join us for a football themed protest on TUESDAY 5 JUNE. Meet at Palestine Place at 12 NOON and bring a football shirt (any team) if you can. We’ll be tweeting with the hashtag #LetSarsakLive

Chronicles of a refugee is a 6-part documentary series looking at the global Palestinian experience over the last 60 years.
