Life in Occupied Palestine: Eyewitness Stories & Photos
A film by Anna Baltzer
Wednesday, October 20th
Ballantine Hall room 146
Open discussion to follow screening
Anna is a Jewish-American Columbia graduate, former-Fulbright scholar, the granddaughter of Holocaust refugees, and an award-winning lecturer, author, and activist for Palestinian human rights.
Her film, Life in Occupied Palestine, provides an excellent introduction—in a down-to-earth, non-alienating way—to the occupation in Palestine and the nonviolent movement for freedom and equality in the Holy Land.
This screening is sponsored by Hoosiers for Peace in the Middle East. For more information, find us on Facebook:

Hoosiers for Peace in the Middle East is a relatively new student organization on campus, consisting mainly of CMCL grad students (but welcoming others to join!). The group plans to address topics centered on the history and current status of conflicts in the Middle East, as well as the U.S. presence in said conflicts.
This is the first of the events that this group will sponsor, with another film screening to follow during Advocacy Week in early November. As a fledgling organization, Hoosiers for Peace in the Middle East would really like to increase its visibility on campus and (hopefully) increase group membership.
Please feel free to distribute widely information about this screening.
