PALESTINE IS STILL THE ISSUE

Documentary by John Pilger

In 1974, John Pilger made the film Palestine Is Still The Issue. It was about a nation of people ─ the Palestinians ─ forced off their land and later subjected to a military occupation by Israel. An occupation condemned by the United Nations and almost every country in the world, including Britain. But Israel is backed by a very powerful friend, the United States. In 2002 Pilger made another film of the same name. He said that nothing had changed in 25 years regarding the great injustice. What had changed, however, is that the Palestinians have fought back. Stateless and humiliated for so long, Palestinians have risen up against Israel's huge military machine, although they themselves have no arms, no tanks, and no American planes and gun ships or missiles. Some Palestinians committed desperate acts of terror, like suicide bombing. But for most Palestinians, the overriding, routine terror, day after day, has been the ruthless control of almost every aspect of their lives, as if they live in an open prison. This evening's film is the story of the Palestinians and a group of courageous Israelis united in the oldest human struggle ─ to be free.

Wheelchair accessible around the block at 411 28th Street
