Born in Gaza

Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 22:30 to Friday, September 16, 2016 - 00:30

We are kick-starting our fall program with BORN IN GAZA, a visually stunning documentary about the children who live, play, dream and survive every day in the largest open air prison in the world.

The screening will be held at the London Public Library, 251 Dundas, Stevenson & Hunt, room A, on SATURDAY, SEPT. 15, 2016, 6:30 pm. (Parking is free if validated at the reception desk.)

This event will come one day after the launch of the Women’s Boat to Gaza which will carry on board women from all over the world in an effort to challenge the blockade imposed by the state of Israel and bring a powerful message of solidarity to Palestinian women who are bearing the brunt of this brutal siege.  (https://wbg.freedomflotilla.org).

There will be three Canadian women on the boat and one of them is our own friend and fellow activist, Wendy Goldsmith, a committed social worker and mother of three.

We will be providing information on how to support Wendy and the Women’s Boat to Gaza campaign. Also, Dr. Tarek Loubani will give us an update on the present situation in the region.

Discussion will follow the screening.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
