Public Theatre in New York Cancels Production of Palestinian Play

Felice Gelman, from The US Friends of The Jenin Freedom Theatre, will talk about the decision earlier this year by the Public Theatre in New York to go back on an agreement to present the play The Seige in partnership with the Freedom Theatre in Jenin, in the West Bank.

Earlier this year, The Public Theatre slammed the door on Palestinian artists. Without explanation, they backed out of an agreement with the Freedom Theatre of Jenin to be a partner in staging The Siege. The US Friends of The Jenin Freedom Theatre say they are still determined to bring the play to the US in the next year.

There is a history of censorship of works of art that tell the story of the Palestinian people, or expose the towering crimes against humanity of the Israeli Zionist regime. In 2006, a performance of My Name Is Rachel Corrie, directed by the late Alan Rickman, was cancelled by the New York Theatre Workshop.

Attacks on Pro-Palestinian Movement on Campuses

We'll also speak with Robert Gardner, a UCLA student and member of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). Earlier this year, he found that posters had been put up around campus that called him and 15 other students "Jew haters" and "terrorist allies." This is part of a major new campaign funded by billionaire Sheldon Adelson to oppose the growing movement on campuses to support the Palestinian people.

Robert Gardner, a student at UCLA and member of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), will tell us about the recent attacks on himself and other SJP activists, and a major initiative funded by billionaire Sheldon Adelson to oppose the pro-Palestinian movements on California campuses.
