Sunday 31 May, 4pm AEST (Sydney/Melbourne)
The film screening will be followed by a discussion with the film maker and Mavi Marmara survivor Rifat Audeh, along with others. “In 2010, the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, a convoy of six boats carrying humanitarian aid, attempted to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza. After refusing Israel’s demand to turn away, the flotilla continued on course through international waters, and the Israeli Occupation Forces launched a night-raid attacking the boats. On one of the boats, the Mavi Marmara, the Israeli ‘soldiers’ shot and killed nine human rights activists and a tenth later died of his injuries. The film details what happened that night, unravelling how the story was spun by the media”. To see the trailer click here.
