Since 2005, the Israeli-Palestinian NGOs Combatants for Peace and the Parents Forum have been organizing a joint, inclusive ceremony for Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day in Tel Aviv. The goal of the event is to challenge the consensual narrative and offer an alternative that denounces war and contests the legitimacy of violence. In the last few years, the organizers have been encouraging screenings and satellite events in cities throughout the world. This 7th of May, gate48 in cooperation with AUC (Amsterdam University College) and FFIPP-NL (Educational Network for Human Rights in Israel/Palestine) will live-stream the ceremony in Amsterdam. We invite you to join us for the screening of this unique event and for a conversation about inclusion and non-violent resistance in present day Israel/Palestine.
The event will be moderated by Erella Grassiani and Hilla Dayan, co-founders of gate48.
The widespread controversy surrounding US congresswoman Ilhan Omar's criticism of the influence of the lobby-group American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on policy-makers in the United States has sparked a big debate in the U.S.
In light of these events, FFIPP Netherlands is hosting a screening of the film "The Occupation of the American Mind". Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, the film explores how the Israeli government, the US government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives and interests, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel’s favor.
Hosted by FFIPP Netherlands.

In her lecture, Prof. Shalhoub-Kevorkian will share with us the voices and writings of Jerusalemite children who live under Occupation. Through their letters she will reveal how surveying, imprisoning, torturing and killing can be used as a laboratory for states, arms companies, and security agencies to market their technologies as “combat proven”.
