Israeli Apartheid Week – Newcastle University Friends of Palestine
Taking place across 3 days, we would like to invite to join us to celebrate Palestinian culture in the Martin Luther King Suite, watch a documentary followed by a discussion (also in MLK Suite) and finally protest with us as we demand Newcastle University divests from companies complicit in the illegal occupation of Palestinian land…
18th March – 12-3pm – Palestinian Culture Day
Celebrating all things Palestinian – food, music, art etc., this is a chance to socialise with like-minded people and discuss all things Palestine! Small donations to cover food (inc. our very own delicious homemade hummus) would be greatly appreciated.
19th March – 6:30-9pm – Film Screening and Discussion- ‘Killing Gaza’
Killing Gaza is a documentary film by journalists Max Blumenthal and Dan Cohen, documenting Israel’s 2014 assault on Gaza during the war, and chronicling its horrific aftermath.
20th March – 10am-1pm – Protest and Petition
Join us to demand Newcastle University divests from the likes of HSBC, Barclays, BAE Systems and Rolls Royce – all companies complicit in Israeli Apartheid!
