Modem friendly video clips of End Occupation of Iraq London demo

27-09-2003 20:50

Initial BBC reports claimed a few thousand protestors. Hopefully these clips will disprove that farcical figure. Trafalgar Square was absolutely packed and numbers were nearer 100,000.
First 2 clips are MPEG1 format and will play on any computer with nothing extra needed. 3'rd clip allows you to go on a virtual reality tour of the crowds in the square but you need Quicktime 6 installed.

Edinburgh: theatre play about Palestine and ISM, 9-25 October

27-09-2003 13:07

9-25 October: Theatre Workshop presents The Jasmine Road

The Jasmine Road is about a relationship between an artist and poet who is a Palestinian refugee, played by Nabil Shaban, and a young ISM activist, played by Marnie Baxter. The two characters are brought together by the situation in the Gazza Strip, where Palestinians and Jewish settlers have been battling over land rights since the late 19th century. Whilst the poet's life and future has been shaped by a place that he can never return to, the young activist's destiny is determined by her very presence there. The play aims to highlight the role and responsibility that artists take in inspiring activists and thereby people in general.

Voice of the People - video interviews from Palestine Rally

27-09-2003 07:14


[UK, London, Saturday 17th May 2003]

On Saturday 17th May thousands of British people marked the 55th anniversary of the Nakba, - the expulsion of the Palestinians when their land was stolen to create Israel, by converging on Trafalgar Square in London for a rally demanding an end to zionist occupation and for freedom for Palestine. The huge crowds reflected the broad base of support for the Palestinian cause in British society. The rally was organised by the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign and supported by a host of pro-justice organisations.

Journalist John Pilger, actors Juliet Stevenson and Corin Redgrave, and Sophie Hurndall the sister of the British photographer shot in the head by the Israeli army, were among the distinguished speakers to address the rally. We have provided all of the speeches below (around 30 speeches in real audio format) for you to listen to or download.
