Attention Christchurch crew: Come see me speak about Israel/Palestine (oh, and a film)

The Human Rights Film Festival is on again, and one of the films showing this year is the fairly decent Occupation 101, about the occupation of Palestine. It’s not without problem, but it is a stunningly well made documentary, and is well worth seeing.

As is the tradition with the HRFF, after each screening there is an “expert” speaker who talks for 5-10 mins followed by 20 mins of questions, answers and discussion on the film.

I will be the speaker after both sessions of Occupation 101 in Otautahi / Christchurch, at the Regent On Worcester.

Wednesday, 28 May – 8.00pm
Thursday, 29 May – 6.00pm

For more info, check out 6 clips from the film on the official website. I’ll post up my speech on here sometime after I’ve given it.

p.s: sorry for not posting for a month. been insanely busy doing things, and don’t have internet at home at the moment. i’m leaving the country soon, but will keep blogging with stories from my trip (more about that later…)

  1. What “occupation”? The jews were there 1500 years before there were any Arabs there or any Muslims existed. You might also look at the map created by the UN in 1948. Judea and Samaria were part of Israel until the Arab armies invaded. Israel compared to the Arab countries is a matchbook on a football field. Where are all of their wealthy brothers when it comes time to welcome these people to Arab countries?Let’s see: They were thrown out of Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Syria. Hmmm. Does that tell you something?

  2. The seven rules of ethnic nationalism, quoted for truth…

    1.If an area was ours for 500 years and yours for 50, it should belong to us – you are merely an occupier.

    2.If an area was yours for 500 years and ours for 50, it should belong to us – borders must not be changed.

    3.If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the Cradle of our Nation.

    4.If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right to self-determination.

    5.If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.

    6.All of the above rules apply to us but not to you.

    7.Our dream of greatness is Historical Necessity, yours is Fascism.
