OVER 300 people attended the West Country premiere of the film Jeremy Hardy Versus the Israeli Army in Exeter last Saturday. People came to see the film made by Leila Sansour about the journey broadcaster Hardy takes when he agrees to become a volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) and join them in their work in Palestine.
Jeremy Hardy said, 'It is really important that people are prepared to see and hear for themselves accounts of the tragic and terrifying situation in Palestine. The occupation has an oppressive and grinding effect daily on the lives of ordinary Palestinian people.'
The event raised over £1,000. This will be donated to the ISM. Some 15 people who are considering becoming ISM volunteers attended a workshop.
