Cafe Palestina will be presenting two films addressing the Israel/Palestinian occupation at the Friends Meeting House, 280 State Road (Rte. 23) in Great Barrington. The first, “The War Around Us,” dramatically captures the isolation of the only two reporters covering Israel’s 2008 attack on Gaza “Operation Cast Lead,” in which 1400 civilians died. It received a standing ovation at the 2012 Boston Palestine Film Festival. The second film, “The Iron Wall,” on Thursday, November 29, provides a great historical overview explaining how Palestinian land was taken and how settlements work. There are interviews with Jeff Halper of ICAHD (Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions) and others. Refreshments
available. Free admission. Donations welcome.
