Jerusalem: an Occupation Set in Stone?Gilad Atzmon Salem-News.com
"This forceful documentary...introduces us to Jerusalemites we rarely hear from." —San Francisco Jewish Film Festival
(LONDON) - This is a tribute to the thousands of Palestinians living in East Jerusalem without access to life's most basic amenities.
Filmmaker Marty Rosenbluth details the devastating effects of Israel's urban planning policies that, according to many, aim to uproot the Palestinian presence in the Holy City.
It was made in 1995.
Produced by the Palestinian Housing Rights Movement, Jerusalem: An Occupation Set in Stone? reveals the hard facts of life in Palestine.
Due to its fairness and clarity, An Occupation Set in Stone was awarded an Honorable Mention for the Lindheim Award in the Third Annual Jewish Video Competition.
This award that honors programs that best explore the political and social relationships between Jews and other ethnic or religious groups.
Gilad Atzmon: In the last month I circulated some invaluable reports by Vera Macht, an ISM (International Solidarity Movement) activist operating in Gaza.
My friend Gabi Weber decided to launch an urgent appeal for Vera Macht and ISM in Gaza.
Gabi writes, “These young activists who work with the ISM in Gaza, do it on a voluntary basis. They do not earn a single penny. In fact most of their activity is financed by themselves. At the moment there is no money left for urgent medical treatment.
The work of these young ISM activists is admirable and should be supported by every humanist. Day by day they witness horrific crimes committed by the Israeli army. The least we can do, is help them financially.
In the following you’ll find data from Vera´s bank account in Germany. We decided to collect all the money on this account and then transfer it to Gaza. This will be less expensive.
Jazza production also lends its paypal account for the cause. In the next month (until March 15th 2011) money that will be channeled to Jazza Production’s Paypal will be sent to Vera Macht and the ISM in Gaza.
Please spread this appeal widely, so we’ll have the chance to help Vera and the ISM.
THANK YOU ALL.
