We know that many folks in the UK are feeling isolated, powerless and alone in grief and anger as we witness the violence and genocide unfolding in Gaza. The media narratives are dehumanising and it has a devastating impact. We need to find ways to bear witness, respond, resist, practice, grieve, heal and care for each other. We want to carve out a convivial space to be together and to remind our community that we are many.
We are opening our spaces in synchronicity on Thursday 19 October for communities in solidarity with Palestine to gather and hold each other.
We will screen films from the programme by the Palestine Film Institute: Unprovoked Narratives.
Warm drinks and nourishment will be available
We stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people, their right to freedom, to land, to life, to dignity and empathy. Let action be the practice that organises and transforms our grief. We encourage other groups to join us in opening up their spaces too.
Please check with each organisation for a site-specific opening times and schedule.
