with Q&A with Jonathan Cook

Tickets: £8.50 (£5 concessions)

Meet the brave and determined individuals working to expose the destructive, unjust, and sometimes invisible ways in which Israel exploits and oppresses Palestinians. Since June 1967, Israel has controlled the lives of the Palestinians living in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Over the course of fifty years, this control has become more sophisticated, more systematic, and harder to recognize. This film shines a light on those struggling to fight the injustices embedded within the Israeli occupation of Palestinians in the West Bank and those living in Israel.

The film will be followed by a short Q&A with Jonathan Cook.

Jonathan Cook is an award-winning British journalist. He was based in Nazareth, Israel, for 20 years. He returned to the UK in 2021. He is the author of three books on the Israel-Palestine conflict and was awarded the Martha Gellhorn Special Prize for Journalism in 2011.

All events will include a merch stand with £5 Tote bags, Palestinian items and stocking fillers. All profits will be donated to Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP).
