'Story of a Martyr' Screening

Palestine Solidarity Society screening of 'Story of a Martyr' and Public Meeting with Bil'in activists - 7pm, Thursday 12th November, The Space, Aras na Mac Leinn, NUI Galway

Bassem Abu Rahmah was a non-violent anti-Apartheid Wall activist from the West Bank village of Bil'in. On April 17th 2009 he was murdered by the Israeli military when he was shot at point blank range in the chest with a tear gas canister. This film looks at the situation in Bil'in through the lens of Bassem's short life.

Evie Soli is 26 years old and studies Social Anthropology in Trondheim University in Norway. Last year she worked in a refugee camp in Palestine. Since then she has actively worked for an academic and trading boycott of Israel through "the Committee for Palestine" in Norway. This year she worked as an activist in Hebron, Al Quds (Jerusalem) and mostly Bil'in with grassroots resistance movements. She is now working on the creation of ISM Norway, and continuing to raise awareness and promote the boycott.

Pete Jones is 25 years old and have been involved in Palestinian solidarity since his undergraduate days, campaigning in the UK through student movements and later, in Paris, through various affinity groups. He spent two months in the West Bank this summer, in Nablus and Al Quds (Jerusalem) for a short while but doing most of his work in Bil'in. He is involved with the ISM network in London, planning and executing direct actions that aim to raise awareness of the exploitation and oppression of Palestinians by the occupation forces as well as to convince complicit companies and governmental agencies to cut their ties with Israel as part of the on-going effort to establish a full and proper boycott until such a point as the occupation is ended.
