SRP (Studenten voor Rechtvaardigheid in Palestina) – Jalazone Playground: Benefit Dinner

Thursday March 1st 2018, SRP (Studenten voor Rechtvaardigheid in Palestina) – Jalazone Playground: Benefit Dinner, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

On the 1st of March Students for Justice in Palestine ( will kickstart a series of benefit dinners at Joe’s Garage to raise money for the building of a children’s playground in the Palestinian refugee camp of Jalazone.
Last summer SRP visited Jalazone camp during one of our annually organised trips to Palestine. The living circumstances of the Palestinians in this refugee camp left a lasting impression on the group. Motivated by what they had seen they asked the local women’s collective for advice. Out of this conversation, a fund-raising project for the building of a children’s playground was formed.

Come and join us for a delicious meal and bring along your friends, family and neighbors. It will be a night of good company and great food! […Lees verder]

Benefit for the Social Kitchen “The Other Human” in Athens

Monday February 19th 2018, Benefit for the Social Kitchen “The Other Human” in Athens. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

The idea of Social Kitchen “The Other Human” began when we noticed in the public food markets of Athens, people of various ages, nationalities, and social levels rummaging through rubbish to find food they otherwise couldn’t afford to buy. The first obvious response was to cook our own food from home and distribute it in the public market places. We asked each food stall merchant to volunteer one item from their food bench so we could continue the next day. We then decided to cook on site for people and to eat the cooked food together. This way we could all come together and break through any shame or embarrassment which might be an issue for anyone. […Lees verder]

New Hearing in Mumia’s Case set for 3/27/2018 – Judge orders New District Attorney to address his request to “find out what happened to the missing Memo by taking action,” including a suggestion that they might depose the former ADA to get the answers.” He noted that he would require a status conference on 2/26/18, to hear details of their efforts. “I do not want to have another hearing in two months, and be in the same place. These questions need to be answered.”

Mumia Abu-Jamal, represented by Sam Spital of the NAACP and Judith Ritter, Professor at Widner, was in court in Philadelphia challenging his criminal conviction. Common Pleas Court judge Leon Tucker opened court with a query to the DA about his order that the prosecution produce testimony regarding a missing letter by former DA Ron Castille. This evidence, or evidence of a similar nature, could be a key to Mumia’s criminal defense appeals being reinstated. […Lees verder]
