[Portadown] IAW 2016: Film Screening – John Pilger’s ‘Palestine Is Still The Issue’ (IPSC)
FILM SCREENING OF THE DOCUMENTARY PALESTINE IS STILL THE ISSUE
DRUMCREE COMMUNITY CENTRE
Ashgrove Road, Portadown
SATURDAY 12th MARCH @ 12.30pm
Free Admission – donations welcome
John Pilger first made the documentary film ‘Palestine Is Still The Issue’ in 1977. It told how almost a million Palestinians had been forced off their land in 1948, and again in 1967.
Many years later, John Pilger returned to the West Bank and Gaza to ask why the Palestinians, whose right of return was affirmed by the United Nations more than half a century ago, are still caught in a terrible limbo – refugees in their own land, controlled by Israel in the longest military occupation in modern times.
This event is organised by the Portadown branch of the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) as one of a series of events taking place around Ireland during international Israeli Apartheid Week 2015 (5th – 13th March). See the IAW 2016 page for a full list of events taking place around Ireland.
