JOIN US for a screening of “100 Balfour Road” – next in our series of events marking the signing of the Balfour Declaration leading to 100 years of British complicity in the dispossession of the Palestinian people.
This film spotlights the story of a British family who are driven out of their home by the British government and forced to live in a cramped shack in the backyard. Another family—the Smiths—take possession of the house and put down roots in the building, leaving the real house owners—the Joneses—with neither food nor medicines. Heavily-armed soldiers escort the settlers at the same time as they tighten the noose around the neck of the Joneses and deprive them of their basic rights.
As part of remembering a hundred years of British complicity in the oppression of Palestinians, Brighton and Hove Palestine Solidarity Campaaign are showing this hard-hitting piece from director Anas Alkarmi and Imagine Films,
The panel of speakers is Anas Al Karmi (Director), Jake Norris (University of Sussex) and John Newsinger (Author of ’The Blood Never Dried’). Speakers will be followed by a Q&A session.
This is an opportunity to come and hear why the Balfour declaration is a matter of shame, not pride, for this country.
