`What would you do?` IDF checkpoint at the suburbs of Tel AvivItamar Rose - Y-net - The daily reality of the occupation was re-enacted in Bat Yam, a lower middle class suburb of Tel Aviv. A realistic checkpoint was erected, and random pedestrians were asked to take part in a role-playing game: don a (real) IDF uniform, take up a (mock) gun and respond to the plea of a 15-year old Gazan girl (played by a 15 year old Arab girl from Jaffa) who asked to be allowed to cross and see for the last time her dying grandmother, seated in a wheelchair on the other side of the checkpoint (played by an old Israeli of Moroccan origin). The reactions of passers by, asked to play soldier for five minutes, were all too similar to those of actual soldiers when it is for real. ak checkpoinys. ak24/4/2014

2014 Liberation Seder in TorontoBeit Zatoun - Two Liberation Seders, dedicated to a free Palestine and the liberation of all peoples, will be held this on this year`s Passover in Canada - one in Toronto and one in Hamilton. At Passover, Jewish families celebrate the liberation of the ancient Hebrews from oppression in the land of Egypt. Our Liberation Seder draws on the legacy of Rabbi Akiva who used the Pesach Seder to plan a revolutionary struggle against the Romans, and of the Partisans of the Warsaw Ghetto who began their revolt on the first night of Pesach - not only because the tactical need of the moment, but also because their understanding of the meaning of the Passover story.

Union members resolved to carry out research into KCL`s investments, partnerships and contracted companies "that may be implicated in violating Palestinian human rights." and to pressrue the KCL administration to divest from Israel and from companies that "support the Israeli occupation and apartheid policies," either directly or indirectly. ak 1/4/2014
