Events today Tuesday 05th June
We had another great day filled activities: media workshop, film screening, filming and discussions over shared dinner. Palestine Place is growing and beginning to feel like home to more and more people.
Events planned for tomorrow, Tuesday 5th June, are:
4pm Introduction to Israeli Apartheid and BDS workshop
This introductory workshop will be run daily and is designed to give people some basic facts about Israeli apartheid and the Palestinian campaign for boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel.
5pm Action planning workshop ahead of G4S AGM on June 7 – introduced by Shiar from Corporate Watch
G4S is a huge private security company involved in oppression and abuse of rights all over the world. The company lost its contract to deport people from the UK last September after 773 complaints of abuse were made against the company and following the death of Jimmy Mubenga, an Angolan asylum seeker who died after being ‘restrained’ by G4S guards.
G4S is contracted to provide equipment to the Israeli prisons in which Palestinian political prisoners, including child prisoners, are illegally held. More than 1,600 Palestinian political prisoners recently held a mass hunger strike and several remain on hunger strike.
6pm Chronicles of a Refugee (continued)
7pm Talk with Sebastian Rodriguez, Israeli BDS activist and Anarchists Against the Wall member, and live link up with Israeli activist Yonatan Shapira
From 7pm, shared dinner!
