To commemorate the Palestinian Nakba, Catastrophe, there will be a public screening of Sacred Stones at the Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek on Wednesday 11 May.
Peter Kent-Baguley writes:
“This poignant documentary graphically reveals the extent to which Israel is literally taking the land of the Palestinians. Having virtually banned quarrying in Israel, Palestinian labour is employed by the Israelis to extract stone from the diminishing and increasingly fragmented Israeli occupied Palestinian West Bank for export to Israel.”
“The evening is designed to raise awareness of the injustices faced by the Palestinians and to provide a safe and calm space for people to discuss the issue. Silence seldom dissolved prejudice, fear and ignorance. On the contrary, silence is perhaps the strongest of all oppressions.”
Free admission – All are welcome
