Faversham and Whitstable Palestine Solidarity Campaign
International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People- Friday 29th November 2013 In 1977, the General Assembly of the United Nations called for the annual observance of 29th November as the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People (resolution 32/40 B). On that day we are showing this Palestinian documentary film that was nominated for a Oscar. About the film – It is a deeply personal film made by farmer Emad Burnat, recording first-hand the non-violent resistance of Bil’in inhabitants to the bulldozing of their olive groves to build the Wall and take land for the illegal settlement Modi’in Illit. The Wall’s route cuts off 60% of Bil’in farmland. Burnat records the growth of his baby son, born at the same time the resistance started, and the way these events affect his family and friends.
