Thursday January 23, 7:15 pm PALESTINE TRUTH TOUR 2003 First Hand Reports from Palestine. The Palestine Truth Tour 2003 includes a special showing of "Amandla Intfada," a remarkable new video on Palestine, and a first-hand account by human rights activist Liv Dillon, followed by facilitated group discussion. "Amandla Intfada" is a new video by Big Noise Tactical, the documentary filmmaking collective that made "This is What Democracy Looks Like" and "Zapatista." The video features Palestinian leaders including Dr. Mustafa Barghouti and Hanan Ashrawi, and front-line scenes from Jenin, Hebron, and other cities. "Amandla Intfada" concludes with never-before seen footage of the Israeli invasion of Jenin from the summer of 2002. Liv Dillon spent 3 weeks this April in a Palestinian Refugee camp in Bethlehem during the Israeli invasion. She lived with a refugee family under curfew for almost the entire time, and did volunteer work in Bethlehem during the siege of Manger Square, delivering food to besieged areas, riding with ambulances and walking people to the hospital during curfew. Sponsored by the Bay Area Tikkun Community Education Committee and New College of California. (Requested donation of $5-10 - no one will be turned away for lack of funds.)
