- LOBBY: Tower Hamlets Council
****Lobby Tower Hamlets Council - Free Speech on Palestine!" Earlier this year, Tower Hamlets Council refused to let us use one of its parks for a Welcome Rally for a charity Bike Ride. Lobby the council to safeguard our right to campaign for Palestine in Tower Hamlets! WHEN: Wednesday January 15th, 6pm-7pm WHERE: Mulberry Place, 5 Clove Crescent, London, E14 1SA _____________________________ MORE INFO: Earlier this year, Tower Hamlets Council refused to let us use one of its parks for a Welcome Rally for a charity Bike Ride. We are asking for this safeguarding clause to be adopted by the Council and will present our petition. (1) Adopt the following caveat to the IHRA statement of 19 September. This safeguards our right to campaign for Palestine in Tower Hamlets. "It is not antisemitic, without additional evidence, to suggest that it displays anti-Jewish prejudice to criticise the Government of Israel; or to criticise Zionism as a political ideology; or to describe any policy or law or practices of the state of Israel as racist, including acts leading to Palestinian dispossession as part of the establishment of the state; or to define Israel as an apartheid state; or to advocate Boycott Divestment and Sanctions against Israel."
- THEATRE: I Have Two Names
Salim has lived a happy existence in London for over 10 years. Suddenly, his friends start to take an interest in his homeland Palestine and his seemingly easy life in the UK is altered. He is faced with a bittersweet feeling; the pleasure that those close to him want to discover his country mixed with the frustration that they can journey there with the ease of holidaymakers, travelling a route that is totally off limits to him. Through Al Zaytouna Dance Theatre’s artful mix of dabke, contemporary dance and theatre performed to a ground shaking mix of modern electronic and traditional beats, the play questions the nature of solidarity movements and explores the complex experience of exile, identity and homesickness. The performance will be followed by Q&A with Director and cast. Written and directed by Ahmed Najar. Supported by Amal – a Saïd Foundation programme and Arts Council England. -- About Al Zaytouna Dance Theatre: Al Zaytouna Dance Theatre is a UK-based theatre and dance group with a mission to promote Palestinian arts and culture. Formed in 2005, the group has a distinctive creative approach, fusing traditional Palestinian dabke with Western influences resulting in an innovative contemporary performance style. Al Zaytouna is unique in the way it combines dabke with theatre, poetry, literature, music, digital and other media to tell powerful stories about Palestine. This approach enables the group to celebrate a broad range of Palestinian culture and artists while creating invaluable opportunities for intercultural exchange. https://www.facebook.com/events/614763865678966/?event_time_id=614763872345632
