This event will take place at the Pioneer's Lodge in Parkvale on Tuesday, June 25th, 2024, at 6PM. All ticket holders will be automatically entered to win a unique door prize donated by a local artist, and you can earn an additional entry by donating bottles or funds to aid our cause. More information will be released this weekend regarding the door prize, so remember to check our page for updates! The film we are screening is a documentary called Where Olive Trees Weep, which offers a searing window into the struggles and resilience of the Palestinian people under Israeli occupation. It explores themes of loss, trauma, and the quest for justice. A brief discussion period will follow the film including a speech from our guest speaker, beloved Palestinian Activist, Lara Al-hmaidat. More information including the full synopsis and ticket purchase can be found using the link below. We are so grateful to our community for their unwavering support and dedication.
