Dalston Solidarity Cafe - Join us on SATURDAY 13th of April between 2pm and 8pm at Halkevi Kurdish Community Centre (33 Dalston Lane, E8 3DF).

We will be screening Children of Shatila (1998), an account of the Shatila refugee camp as it is view through the creative eyes of two Palestinian children. Many people first became aware of this camp in Lebanon after the shocking and horrific Sabra-Shatila massacre that took place there in 1982. We will hold an informal discussion after the film.

This is a chance for people who are unable to attend the big Palestine marches in London to come along and learn more about different forms of Palestinian resistance and participate in other acts of solidarity. The screening has been scheduled for a later time so that people may join after demo, if there is one scheduled on the day.

From 2pm onwards we’ll also have:
🥙 'Pay-what-you-can' food & drinks
🖌️ Banner making for Palestine
🏴 Infoshop: zines, stickers & more
💕Free binders donated by Gender Swap (limited sizes available)
👕 Free shop & clothes swap
📚 Radical book swap & giveaway

🔥at 4.30pm:
Screening of "Children of Shatila" (1998, 50 mins). Join us for a discussion after.

The space is wheelchair accessible (through the Tyssen Street entrance)

We ask everyone attending to be respectful of others. We won’t tolerate racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic and any other discriminatory behaviour.

The Dalston Solidarity Cafe is a space that connects a diversity of collectives, realities and individuals who by sharing their knowledge and experience will be able to offer a range of mutualistic practices. These can help the community to improve our condition and happiness, beyond the “survival mode” today’s society forces us to be in.
