VIMAF and ALL NATIONS Festival invite you to the westcoast premiere of videos from Matt Peterson and Malek Rasamny’s documentary project The Native and the Refugee, connecting struggles taking place on Indian reservations in the United States and those in Palestinian refugee camps in the Middle East. This event will focus on the native dimension of the project, watching and discussing the current situations on Indigenous Territories across Turtle Island, including here in Coast Salish Territory.
The event will start at 6pm with an informal outdoor bbq (vegan/meat) by donation and at 7pm the event will go inside with introductory remarks by Artist Jayce Salloum. The screening will be followed with a discussion with the filmmakers

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.
