Alert: Protest Israeli Government / Israel Lobby sponsored film festival
inminds 11 June 2013
As the latest chapter of Israel's "brand Israel" project, whereby culture is used to whitewash an apartheid state founded on the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people and occupation of their land, the Israeli government has teamed up with the Israel Lobby BICOM to sponsor a film festival in the UK (Seret 2013) which will showcase Israeli film and television at venues around London including Odeon Swiss Cottage Cinema. The festival is also sponsored by occupation profiteers like Golan Heights Winery and Bank Leumi.
We will be picketing outside Odeon Swiss Cottage on friday 14th June at 7:15pm before a Seret festival film screening asking the Cinema to stop its complicity in this whitewashing of apartheid and giving out leaflets to the public, talking to them about boycotting 'brand Israel'. Please join us!
