Showing Thursday, September 4th, in Cambridge:
 
*/Palestine Blues /* 80 min

"*/Palestine Blues/* follows the repercussions of the Israeli Security 
Wall and Settlement expansion in the engulfed/annexed Palestinian 
farming communities of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.  Instead of 
focusing on the Wall as an object, Palestine Blues examines the 
grassroots resistance movement that has sprung up against it.

Focusing on the village of Jayyous (close to Qalqilia) and its 
nonviolent campaign against the wall, the film documents the heroic 
victories and tragic defeats of this farming community's fight for survival.

/"80 per cent of the West Bank's precious water is diverted into illegal 
settlements where Israelis enjoy a 24/7 supply, fill their swimming 
pools and wash their cars while Palestinians are strictly rationed or go 
without./

/And while all this thieving is going on Israel hurries to establish 
enough "acts on the ground" to make their unlawful occupation 
irreversible ..."/ Stuart Littlewood, author of the book Radio Free 
Palestin/e/

Why should YOU care? It's your money that pays for the occupation &
illegal Israeli settlements.
