The Middlesex University Global South Solidarity Campaign is organising the showing of a new documentary filmed in Palestine, “A Stone’s Throw from Prison,” in order to raise money for Palestinian charity: Interpal. The film will be followed up by a Q & A with the director/writer of the documentary Raquel Castells who is coming from Spain to speak at the event.
The film focuses on the arrest and imprisonment of Palestinian children and youth. Its description: “Growing up in the Occupied Palestinian Territory is not easy. When you leave home for school, your mother can’t be sure of when you’ll be back. Maybe that night, maybe a year later. A stroll with your friends may end up in a police interrogation station. On any night, a group of soldiers may wake you up in the middle of the night and take you, your brother, your father… to prison, after blinding and handcuffing you in front of your family. You do not need to do anything special, just be there, be a kid. Rami, Ahmed, Mohammed… Three among thousands. The film is their story, but also that of courageous Israelis and Palestinians working to cut abuses, stop conflict and heal its consequences.”
Since its inception in 1994, Interpal has, together with its local partners, supported thousands of Palestinians through projects aimed at alleviating poverty, providing health care, advancing education, and fostering community development. Interpal supports beneficiaries across the Gaza Strip, West Bank, Lebanon and Jordan. The Global South Solidarity Society is a political society set up to fight against Globalisation, Imperialism, neo-Liberalism and to defend human rights.
