Palestine: Occupied Lives, Non-violence and Steadfastness: a Friday film series (from 4/2 through 5/21) about Palestinians & Israelis committed to nonviolence & coexistence. We are showing five extraordinary, award winning films about Palestinians committed to resist nonviolently Israel's occupation, and Israelis who stand with them against injustice

Tonight, we show our 4th film, Jerusalem: East Side Story, by director Mohammed Alatar. Israel’s most extreme expansion has been the illegal annexation of Palestinian East Jerusalem and creation of a band of Jewish settlements cutting it from the West Bank. We see families watch their homes being demolished, spouses separated because of a discriminatory permit system, Muslims banned from reaching holy Jerusalem to worship.
