Reflections at the Awda Key

The key is a symbol of the Right of Return (Awda in Arabic) for Palestinian refugees – a right enshrined in International Law.

We are there in sunshine and rain!

Cafe Palestine, Sunday, 25th September

arnachildren1Edinburgh Action for Palestine will be holding its regular Cafe Palestine on the last Sunday of September, from 4-6pm, at the Peace and Justice Centre, 5 Upper Bow, Edinburgh EH1 2JN.

We will be showing the film “Arna’s Children”, produced in 2004. The film is set in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank. It focuses on a theatre group for children in Jenin, set up by Arna Mer Khamis to help the children express everyday frustrations, anger, bitterness and fear. The film then returns to Jenin after the Israeli’s massacre of 50 Palestinians there in 2002. Click here to read a review of the film.  There will be time for discussion and for refreshments, too.
