Palestine Direct Action Fundraiser

Joe | 24.08.2010 13:54 | Campaign against Carmel-Agrexco | Palestine | South Coast

Fund-raising party for Palestine


Direct actions in support of Palestine, such as blockades of Ahava or Carmel Agrexco don’t pay for themselves, van hire, D-locks etc all cost cash money. Therefore a network of people who carry out such actions are putting on a fundraiser to pay for future actions. Come on down, with a banging line up and a great social centre to have a party in (the Ratstar comes with 2 rooms of music, a cinema room and even a roof terrace, oh yes), there has never been a funner way to support a great cause.

The day kicks off at 4pm, with workshops on direct action, Palestine related film screenings and a Palestinian cafe. Music kicks off at 8pm.

When: Saturday 11th September 4pm – 4am

How much: free before 8pm, £5 suggested donation afterwards, but pay what you can afford

Where: Ratstar Social Centre, 298 Camberwell Road, Camberwell, London, SE5 0DL (10 mins walk from Oval tube station, well serviced by local bus routes)
