Message from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Southampton Branch.

Dear All,

next week Students for Palestine will be hosting Israeli Apartheid Week at the University of Southampton.

Scheduled activities include the following:

On Tuesday 23rd February, 6.30pm, there will be talk by Hazem Jamjoum in building 58 room 1009. Hazem is a doctoral student in History and Middle East Studies at New York University and will be providing us with an historical over-view of Israel’s regime of apartheid over the Palestinian people from the late 19th century to the present.

On Thursday 25th February, 6.30pm, there will be a talk by David Cromwell also in building 58 room 1009. David is co-editor of Media Lense, a media analysis website which he set up in 2001 with David Edwards, and will be giving a talk on media bias, including Israel’s brutal treatment of the Palestinians, foreign policy and the so-called “war on terror.” He will also be discussing what we can do to give the public a greater role in shaping new agendas and debate.

They are also planning to do film screenings on both Monday and Friday evening – details to follow.

On Tuesday 8th March, 7pm, at Highfield Church Centre, there will be a short 30 minute film about the plight of the Christian Palestinian community in the Bethlehem and Hebron which will be followed by a short talk by Cathryn Spiller who will be running a half-marathon in aid of Amos Trust in Bethlehem in April.

Please do make it along to any of these talks that you are able to and feel free to invite a friend.

Kind regards,

Adam Waterhouse, Branch Secretary – Southampton Palestine Solidarity Campaign
