“For Gaza” is a Kyoto based collective that creates events to raise awareness about the plight of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, combining music, dance and politics with guest speakers, films and discussion.

This should be a great evening- with the proceeds going to JVC as has been the case with our previous events.

At “For Gaza vol 3” We’ll have guest speaker 役重善洋 (YakuShige Yoshihiro) from パレスチナの平和を考える会 who will be talking about the Global BDS movement against Israel – BDS stands for Boycott, Disinvestment and Sanctions. In his presentation he will discuss the options we have as ordinary citizens to change the policies of the Israeli Government towards Palestinian statehood by exerting pressure through these three means.
