Message from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Southampton Branch. Photography exhibition, new Facebook page.

Dear All,

one of our new members, Hayley, arranged for Avenue Church, St Andrews, (located on the Avenue next to the turn off to Alma Road) to host a Photography exhibition, entitled “Silent Voices”, which was created by Palestinian children. The exhibition will be available for viewing from Monday 4th to Sunday 10th April, between 10am and 2pm each day.

Children from the ages of 8 to 18 took a camera home from school and shot their own pictures of family and village life under the guidance of Liverpool community photographer Elaine Stapleton.  The result is an eloquent and moving exhibition of some 24 images. Additionally, there are 10 photos taken by Elaine putting the photos in perspective to be understood as lives lived under a harsh military occupation which has taken much of the village land in order to build a vast illegal settlement on it and which denies Bil’in and Palestinians in general their most fundamental human rights. The exhibition was commissioned by the small group, Liverpool Friends of Bil’in, as part of a twinning project between schools in Liverpool and Bil’in.

Please do take the opportunity to visit the exhibition and take a look at the sad but evocative photographs created by these young Palestinians, depicting the reality of their daily life.

Yara, another one of our new members has kindly agreed to take responsibility for regularly updating our new Facebook Page PSC Southampton. If you have a Facebook account and would like to follow PSC Southampton please visit and Like us at: Please note that our old Facebook page – Southampton PSC – is now no longer in use.

Kind regards, Adam Waterhouse Branch Secretary – Southampton Palestine Solidarity Campaign
