Kumi City Gathering
Kumi City Gathering
How does one have a city gathering in the age of social distancing? A city gathering isn’t a goal for this year, anywhere in the world. Instead, consider watching or learning something about Palestine with your family or Kumi Now community. A few options include:
- Watching Jerusalem: A Rock and a Hard Place from Al-Jazeera: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnhlubuhC5E (Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SqUIM4yVNA)
- If you have access to Netflix (and it is available in your country), you could watch Born in Gaza, about the effects of the conflict on children: https://www.netflix.com/title/81077863?s=i&trkid=13747225
- Renting The Wanted 18 on iTunes or Vudu. The Wanted 18 “recreates an astonishing true story: the Israeli army’s pursuit of 18 cows, whose independent milk production on a Palestinian collective farm was declared ‘a threat to the national security of the state of Israel.'”
Also, don’t forget to register for our upcoming Kumi Now Online sessions, which start Tuesday, June 2 at 6:00pm East Jerusalem, Palestine time (GMT+3). Our first session, coinciding with Week 33 of Kumi Now, features Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh, activist, author, scientist, and director of the Palestine Museum of Natural History, who will help us understand the environmental impacts of the Israeli occupation of Palestine and what activists around the world can do to help resist.
