This May is the 68th anniversary of ‘Nakba’, the Palestinians’ loss of their land when the state of Israel was created in 1948. To mark this occasion, we would like to invite you to an event to discuss calls for the establishment of One Democratic State for Israeli and Palestinian citizens, regardless of ethnicity and religion. Our two speakers are both ODS supporters and Palestinian men from the Galilee:

Awad Abdelfattah is Secretary-General of the Israeli Arab political party National Democratic Assembly (represented in the Knesset). His party supports “a state for all its citizens”; its demand is that Israel be reformed into a liberal democracy.  It was disqualified from the 2009 Israeli elections on grounds that it does not recognize the State of Israel (the ban was overturned by the Israeli Supreme Court). Awad recently spoke about ODS before the South African parliament and has expounded on his views in blogs.

Karl Sabbagh is a television producer and author whose ancestors were forced from their town of Safed in 1948. He supports the ODS vision which calls for the Right of Return of all Palestinian refugees. Karl grew up in England and like earlier Palestinian thinkers George Antonius and Tarif Khalidi, he graduated from Cambridge University’s King’s College.

Event chaired by Dr Ruba Salih (Reader at SOAS) and supported by One Democratic State (ODS) and Cambridge Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

Date: Monday 16th May
Venue: Friends Meeting House, Jesus Lane, Cambridge
Time: 7.30 pm
Cost: Donation (£5 suggested)

Join us for this insightful film and discussion.

Slingshot Hip Hop braids together the stories of young Palestinians living in Gaza, the West Bank and inside Israel as they discover Hip Hop and employ it as a tool to surmount divisions imposed by occupation and poverty. From internal checkpoints and separation walls to gender norms and generational differences, this is the story of young people crossing the borders that separate them.
