The People and The Olive

Hi all,

I just watched the trailer of The People and the Olive, and I’m looking forward to seeing the whole film at the Vancouver CoDev Festival in February – but you can also rent or buy on line at: https://www.facebook.com/ThePeopleandTheOlive/app_203403406338325  It looks to be an inspiring film – tracking a group of international marathoners running through Palestine planting olive trees and hope.

Also Tony Quarrington’s video of his haunting “Unsettling Goods” song highlighting the three settlement-based companies (SodaStream, Keter plastics, Ahava cosmetics) targetted by the United Church of Canada’s Unsettling Goods Campaign, which launches Dec 3 is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMLfbnjmnqY 

And lastly, Jewish Voice for Peace has made a powerful video for Hannukah: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWo5CBNe5LU&list=PL506DFBB625C50301&index=1

With best wishes for the holiday(s) season,

Maxine
