Stop the Siege on Gaza Demonstration August 6 at 6pm in Traverse City


THE LAB: How Israel’s Weapons Industry Works
An investigative documentary by Israeli filmmaker Yotam Feldman

MidEast:JustPeace and community co-sponsors kick off a Fall/Winter Series of events with a showing of The Lab on Thursday, December 1, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. at the Traverse Area District Library. The 60-minute film by Israeli filmmaker Yotam Feldman shines new and startling light on the world of Israeli arms dealers.  Israel reaps huge profits by testing weapons in the laboratory of Gaza and the West Bank and then selling these weapons to armies and police forces worldwide.  The Lab details the creation, testing, and sale of Israeli weapons and military expertise in “asymmetric fighting”, crowd control and methods to defeat civil resistance.    The film is now especially relevant in the wake of police response to the growing number of civil and human rights demonstrations in the United States.  Information on the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement will also be presented at the event.   Admission is free; donations are welcome.
