I heard stories that 50 years ago, good people, with good intentions were shouting and chanting 'Free Free Palestine'.... I also heard that 10, 20,30 and 40 years later they were chanting the same slogans with the same gusto.
Today, as terrorism and tyranny beset the innocent people of the largest ghetto and refugee camp in the world (Gaza) the same voices of anger break out again and although I pray with the best of intentions that I am wrong, I see no hope or reasons as to why, 50 years from now those same voices will not still be shouting 'Free Free Palestine'
We'll be looking to discuss and debate the following:
• The history of modern Israel and the role of Britain in its creation
• The mindset of the media and it's refusal of condemnation with regards to one clear aggressive force.
• Organised Protests- useful or useless?
• The Future. How can we work within the current system or outside of it in order to bring about Justice and Peace?
Everyone is welcome. We offer a place to talk that is free from judgement so that you can focus of freely on expressing yourself without the fear of people becoming emotional or upset.
Also, please make sure you have done some thinking and research around the sub questions. If there is anything you would like to see added, removed or modified, you can make suggestions in the discussions page relating to this debate.
Please Please Please, if you cannot make it, don't forget to remove your RSVP or if it's last minute, you can always text (i've left my details below), It's not nice for others to wait around expecting people to turn up.
Any member who doesn't show up on 3 occasions (after having RSVP'd) without getting in touch to let us know will be removed from the group and only allowed back once we are all satisfied that they won't do it again.
We Are Ummatan Wasata- The Balanced People, The Middle People, The Just People.
