The Gaza Monologues: A Dramatic Reading

Thursday, December 2, 2010 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Don't miss this evening of performance and art!  On Dec. 2, Chicago area actors will be performing the Ashtar Theatre's "The Gaza Monologues!" Written by teenagers in Gaza, the monologues are their stories of life under occupation and siege. "The Gaza Monologues" reveal the human face of Palestinian youth with virtually no outlet to the outside world.

The monologues have been brought to venues around the world and will be performed at the United Nations on November 29th. Join us as we bring this world-renowned performance to Chicago for the first time!

In the aftermath of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla attack, the international community has become more critical of Israel's blockade of Gaza. Despite assuaging statements from Israeli officials, the siege continues and few supplies and freedoms are granted to the Gazan people. The open-air prison, blockaded by land and sea, is in dire need of materials to rebuild since the month long 2009 assault on the Gaza Strip.

Iowans Call for an End to U.S. Funding of Israeli Violence

A Statement by Kathleen McQuillen at a Vigil for Gaza held in Des Moines on June, 2, 2010

Let me start by saying that we decry all violence. We mourn all loss of life. Today, however, we are focused on the attack perpetrated by Israel against civilians in a relief convoy in international waters, and on the siege of Gaza which led to this tragedy.
