A Voice from Palestine, 6th Jan @ 6pm

January 6th at 6.00 Christ Church Pitsmoor, S3 9AQ

Gather together on the Feast of the Epiphany to sit with our crib scene on it’s last day in Church, and take time to listen to the voice of Palestine, as spoken by Revd. Munther Isaac. Light a candle. Hold the Palestinian people in thoughts or prayers.

While the gathering will be in a Pitsmoor Church listening to words recorded in a Bethlehem one, we see the event as open to people of all faiths and none. The cause at this time is just this one small way to ensure we listen, one small gathering to show our solidarity.
Bring your flags.

It is 74 years since the Nakba: a word that measn catastrophe and signifes the expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinians from thier homeland. It is a word Israel has banned from the education syllabus as it reveals the truth of what happened in 1948.

To commemorate the Nakba in 2022 Sheffield PSC will be screening two films at the Yemeni Community Centre on May 13th at 7pm

We will also be holding a rally on Saturday 14th May in Sheffield Town centre at midday in front of the Town Hall, where in collaboration with Badil, we will be joining in a worldwide event to light the Torch of Return.

You can read a strong statement from Badil on the ongoing resistance to the occupation and the meaning of the Nakba here
