Jewish Voice for Peace New Haven is presenting a series of screenings of the film Roadmap to Apartheid. In this award-winning documentary, the directors take a detailed look at the apartheid analogy commonly used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The film will next be presented Saturday, Dec. 5, 2 p.m., at the New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St, New Haven, co-sponsored by the New Haven Peace Council.
Narrated by Alice Walker (author of The Color Purple), and directed by white South African Ana Nogueira and Jewish Israeli Eron Davidson, Roadmap to Apartheid is as much a historical document of the rise and fall of apartheid in South Africa, as it is a film about why many Palestinians feel they are living in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the world agree with them.
We hope you will take as many of these steps as possible:
- Come to the screening and discussion of Roadmap to Apartheid on December 5.
- Visit the web site of the Connecticut Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Coalition to find out more about the film and the Coalition.
- Sign the petition on the web site asking the Treasurer of the State of Connecticut to divest our state’s investments in Israel bonds.
- Contact us here to arrange a screening of Roadmap to Apartheid in your community with a group of your choosing.
Help us bring the issue of Israeli apartheid to public attention. We are ready to bring this documentary and a speaker to community groups that want to learn more about this issue. You can see a trailer of the film at http://roadmaptoapartheid.org.
