  • Thoughts on Gaza | The Freedom Theatre
    I know that some of us including myself have greater freedoms than others I may move as I wish and I don t need to endure Israeli aggressions the same way as others Nevertheless I want to make it clear that we are all in the same boat what happens onto one of us happens onto all of us Therefore I feel confident sharing these words with you The occupation takes many forms It breaks into our houses it prevents our freedom of movement it kills kidnaps tortures and maims it seeds suspicion and fear it confuses and manipulates us In the last weeks it has taken on some of its most monstrous forms a monster that eats children and pulls the ground on which we are standing It shocks us and might make us loose our direction It is beyond painful to watch and it s difficult to know what to do what is our role when brothers and sisters are dying Post on facebook sign petitions demonstrate and protest write a poem or a play comfort our nearest bring out a gun from the closet We the fighters of cultural resistance must stand in the frontline of the Palestinian resistance I believe that it is our role and our duty It is we who have the ability to see through and expose the Israeli manipulations to mend the ruptures in the web of Palestinian society and bring direction and hope to the struggle We have within our capacity to transform apathy into intentional actions and collective efforts We can make the unimaginable possible we can turn hopelessness into determination and the forces of separation into unity It is within our power This fight will never be an easy one The traps are all around us we are gradually becoming more aware of them but there are many left that we have not yet discovered We have fallen into many traps in the past and we have hurt ourselves and others in the fall But we can learn from our past mistakes We must be humble and forgive ourselves and our comrades because if we are not willing to go that far then we will have nowhere to go We must work with ourselves constantly the most challenging struggle and identify the oppression inside us we all have it within our bodies The oppression is there like a virus waiting for the right time and conditions to emerge Beware of it become aware of it deal with it and get rid of it How can we protect ourselves from the destructive powers around us How do we prevent ourselves from being sucked into the maelstrom of fear hate suspicion and hopelessness and ultimately desperation depression and apathy It is up to us If we support each other enough we can prevent evil in all its shapes from entering We can all bring that energy of change and determination from within us and share it with others until we become

  • Artistic Director denied UK visa – but the show will go on | The Freedom Theatre
    the fact that I have travelled extensively around Europe and the US most recently as a keynote speaker at the Kennedy Centre in Washington That I am suspected of intending to jump ship and stay in the UK is simply absurd not to mention offensive I have my family in Palestine and my work as the Artistic Director of one of the world s most interesting theatre institutions My wife is Portuguese so if I had any wish to live in Europe I would not need a UK visa to do so I was rejected because of who I am and this rejection is also part of why we are struggling for our rights and our freedom Jonatan Stanczak Managing Director of The Freedom Theatre fears that the refusal of a visa for Nabil Al Raee may be a precedent for others to come thus jeopardising the entire production The denial is likely the result of a more restrictive British visa policy and the privatisation of the visa reviewal system During the last years several Palestinian cultural workers have been denied entry to the UK Zoe Lafferty director of the upcoming theatre production and one of the organisers of the speaking tour says that it has been extremely frustrating to deal with UK migrations We are not only challenged by the Israeli occupation also by our own government effectively denying British artists the opportunity to cooperate with artists from other parts of the world I do hope that the British public will come to our events to show support for The Freedom Theatre and for Palestinian culture in general Zoe Lafferty adds that one of the actors in the play Ahmed Tobasi a Palestinian with Norwegian citizenship has replaced Al Raee and the speaking tour is taking place as planned

  • Solidarity with Palestinian hunger strikers | The Freedom Theatre
    were later joined by more detainees The total number of hunger strikers now stands at around 290 with more expected to join in the coming weeks This protest has already become the longest running collective hunger strike by Palestinian political prisoners Solidarity actions are taking place throughout occupied Palestine in support of the prisoners Israel is currently attempting to pass legislation through the Knesset in order to begin force feeding hunger strikers According to the prisoner rights advocacy group Addameer Israel is holding some of the hunger strikers in solitary confinement while others have been admitted to Israeli hospitals where they are shackled to their beds The use of administrative detention was one of the issues that fueled the last major Palestinian prisoner hunger strike in 2012 when 2000 people engaged in the protest The Israeli prison service eventually agreed to some of the demands made by the prisoners including limiting its use of administrative detention to only exceptional circumstances ending the long term isolation of prisoners and allowing family visits for prisoners from Gaza However since then Israel has reneged on the agreement by continuing to systematically use administrative detention According to the Israeli human rights group B Tselem there has been a steady increase in administrative detainees and 191 prisoners are currently held under administrative detention In total 5000 Palestinian political prisoners are imprisoned in Israel Administrative detention is detention without trial officially intended to prevent a person from committing an act that is liable to endanger public safety Unlike a criminal proceeding administrative detention is not intended to punish a person for an offense already committed but to thwart a future danger The entire procedure is secret administrative detainees are not told the reason for their detention or the specific allegations against them International law allows administrative
