Mark Thomas - Walking the Wall
We present the fourth in Mark Thomas's lockdown livestream series this evening at 7:30pm!
Never one to take the easy option, Mark decided to go rambling in the Middle East, walking the entire length of the Israeli Separation Barrier. This is the story of 350,000 settlers, a 750km wall, six arrests, one stoning, too much hummus and a simple question... ‘Can you ever get away from it all with a good walk?’
WALKING THE WALL is presented in partnership with a network of UK arts venues and producers. Buying a ticket supports your local venue - thank you. This month's livestream also supports these three amazing organisations who work with child victims of war and pandemics:
The Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD) is a non-violent, direct action Israeli peace and human rights organisation dedicated to end the occupation of Palestine and achieving a just peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Prevention of house demolitions is particularly important to women and their children.
Firefly International is a charity which specifically supports child victims of war. It currently runs wonderful educational and training projects in Bosnia, Syria and Gaza.
The International Medical Education Trust 2000 (IMET2000) works worldwide to provide low-cost education and advanced training to all in the Health Sector working with children suffering physical and mental trauma resulting from war, severe economic deprivation or major natural disasters (imet2000.org).
There will be a Q+A - please leave your questions in the chatroom as the show is on. Plus interview with Colin Green of IMET2000 and a special guest appearance!
Tickets are £5. Can't watch at 7:30? The show remains online for ticket-holders until midnight on Friday.
