Thank you to everyone who came along yesterday evening and made the event a success! And well done to all those helped with the organisation and to Rushdi and his family for hosting the event at their cosy restaurant – Fairuz in Leeds. It was a chilled out gathering, over delicious Palestinian cuisine, followed by the very powerful and potent film.

Some comments about the film:
“It’s opened my eyes to what’s happening in Gaza”
“A very indepth, informative film – very profound emotional impact”
“Horrified by the damage caused by phophorous”

We managed to raise £269.43 – thanks to all those who contributed – this will be sent to ‘Defence for Children International Palestine’ – non-governmental child rights organisation – working on child protection, juvenile justice, accountability, lobbying & legal work. You can learn more about what they do on: http://www.dci-palestine.org/ – be prepared for the case studies you read about the violation of children’s rights by Israeli army and do look up the video section – some powerful stuff there too! ….
We hope to have further screenings of last night’s film in Leeds… so watch this space…
