Please join us!


BRAND ISRAEL & SERET


As the latest chapter of Israel's "brand Israel" project, whereby culture is used to whitewash an apartheid state founded on the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people and occupation of their land, the Israeli government through its London embassy sponsors the annual Seret Israeli film festival in the UK.

At the launch of last years Seret film festival Israel's ambassador to the UK Daniel Taub stressed the importance of "the role the Festival plays in providing a platform for spreading a more accurate picture of Israel across all communities". At the launch the programme director "said that the founders saw themselves as informal ambassadors for Israel". Another co-founder of the festival, Odelia Haroush, was previously the marketing manager of the Ahava shop in Covent Garden that sold stolen dead sea produce and was forced to shut down in Sept 2011 after a sustained campaign by human rights activists. She sees the film festival as a direct response to the boycott Israel campaign. The festival is also co-sponsored by occupation profiteers like Bank Leumi.

We have picketed the Seret film festival from its inception 3 years ago and we will be picketing it again this year. Please join us as we protest outside the private launch of the festival at Goethe Institut on Tuesday 9th June 5:15pm, and the public opening gala at BAFTA on 11th June at 6:15pm.

"1763 in the Ohio river valley you got Lord Jeffrey Amherst committing to written order an instruction to his subordinate Henry Bouquet, having been defeated by Pontiac Ottawa confederacy in the field. The order essentially says that they have been defeated militarily and is therefore necessary for Amherst forces to request a peace, to sue for peace from Pontiacs people. He instructs Bouquet to convene a parlay with the Indian leadership for that purpose. And as is the custom, as is common courtesy among native populations as was known to the Brits at that time, it would be necessary for those who requested the council to give gifts to those requested to attend. Make those gifts, Amherst says, items taken from a smallpox infirmary in order, I'm going to quote directly now, this isn't a paraphrase: 'in order that we may extirpate this execrable race'. Now key is on this last word, had he said that we might eradicate the opposing combatants, their military capacity, their warriors.. what ever term he wanted to use, it would have been biological warefare. But he didn't say anything about that, he said the 'race'. His intent was to use biological means, to use disease, quite explicitly so, to eradicate an entire population group. And Bouquet was also kind enough to commit to writing in his response the next day, I have done as instructed, dispersing three blankets, two handkerchiefs and sundry other items, hopefully, he says, they will have the desired result. They did.. the lowest estimate of the number of people who died of smallpox as a result of that little gesture of friendship and goodwill is a 100,000!"
